OPEN EDUCATION... WHAT IT INCLUDES...

Open Education (OE) encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness worldwide.

OE combines the traditions of knowledge sharing and creation with 21st century technology to create a vast pool of openly shared educational resources, while harnessing today’s collaborative spirit to develop educational approaches that are more responsive to learner’s needs.

OPEN EDUCATION... WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

By providing free & open access to education and knowledge, OE helps create a world to support learning. All interested parties can get additional information, viewpoints and materials to help them succeed, share data and develop new networks, find new ways to (help) learn. 

OE resources can be translated, mixed together, broken apart and openly shared again, increasing access and inviting fresh approaches.
