Opening up Education Europa

As Anka Mulder (Vice President Education and Operations TU Delft) mentioned, the European commission adopted a new Opening Up Education initiative and launched the Open Education Europa website last week:

Opening up Education calls for EU-level cooperation to push reforms towards the adoption of open learning environments as drivers to enhance digital skills both for pupils and teachers, and in education in general. Another major point mentioned in this initiative is to support the availability of digital technology and content.”

Opening up Education focuses on three main areas:

  • Creating opportunities for organisations, teachers and learners to innovate;
  • Increased use of Open Educational Resources (OER), ensuring that educational materials produced with public funding are available to all; and
  • Better ICT infrastructure and connectivity in schools.

“The main goal of the Open Education Europa portal is to grant access to all existing high-quality European OER repositories in different languages in order to make them easily accessible for learners, teachers and researchers. The ultimate aim is to be able to foster the wide use and creation of OER in several languages, for all educational sectors and disciplines, and to help overcome the current fragmentation of European OER use.”

These are important steps for education in Europe. Check out the Open Education Europa portal and browse through OCW-courses, MOOCs and other resources, research and more.
