Open Education: towards open digital learning resources Yves Deville and Olivier Bonaventure, Université catholique Louvain

Short abstract

Open Education introduces, in the field of learning, an open approach with collaboration and knowledge sharing. In terms of content, Open education proposes to promote the development and use of open educational resources, that is learning materials in a digital format freely distributed to educators, students or any individual around the world. Digital opens the door to new types of educational materials and facilitates dissemination. MOOCs are a possible implementation of the Open Education, but other digital technologies can also be offered.

The first part of the talk will present and discuss Open Education.

In the second part, Olivier Bonaventure will present his experience with three open ebooks.
