In this live presentation, from DigitalEd moderated by Professor, Dr. Ebba Ossiannilsson, you’ll hear how a formative preparatory course with extensive materials and tests in a web-based environment improved pass rates for incoming first-year mathematics students in Sweden, and ultimately set them on a track to greater success in their pending paths of study.

Dr. Jonathan Watkins, from the University of Birmingham, will take you through a journey through their instance of the Möbius platform. Explore how Möbius promotes learning through active processing and dynamic testing, facilitates evidence-based optimization of learning, and supports an ecosystem of asset creation and sharing.

CC OER Policy Registry has moved to the OER World Map

Creative Commons OER Policy Registry is currently moved to the OER World Map. The registry allows anybody to easily share, update, and browse open education policies and legislation. It also hosts supporting policy resources such as case studies and guides.

Adding open policies as a new layer to the OER World Map enables open advocates and policymakers to get a more complete picture of all open education activities in a particular country or region.

ICDE Lillehammer conference on February 11-13 February 2019

The ICDE OER Advocacy Committee which I am leading will organize a Symposium during the ICDE Lillehammer conference on February 11-13 February 2019 on OER, and OEP for access, equity, equality, quality, inclusiveness, and empowering lifelong learning (Panel), (3E).

It is well recognized that Open Educational Resources (OER) serves as a catalyst for lifelong learning (LLL), and Continuous Professional Development (CPD). OER can make significant contributions to the United Nation, UNESCO Sustainability Goals (SDG), especially number 4 on education, with its key pillars of access, equity, equality, quality, and inclusion.

The speed of digitalization is constantly challenging and affecting the ways we work. These challenges require new skills and competencies which again has led to an increasing focus on and demand for lifelong learning by society. Almost 300 delegates from 35 countries are ready to learn more, share experiences and discuss the future of lifelong learning for employability at the conference.

Ebba Ossiannilsson is an e-learning expert and consultant with a range of research interests in the use of digital technologies for learning, teaching and research.
