CfP: Seminar on Bridging Educational Divides through MOOCs & OERs at NLU, Delhi [Nov 23]: Submit by Oct 31: Expired

About the Seminar

Higher education institutions around the world are incorporating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to develop teaching, learning, and research to bridge the educational divides. As defined by UNESCO “Digital learning resources are offered online, freely and openly to teachers, students and independent learners in order to be used, adapted, and expanded in teaching, learning, and research.

These include learning content, software tools to develop, use and distribute, as well as implementation resources.” Recently, Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have gained momentum in the fields of education and research. Further, this has exemplified the dimensions of researchers for potential and sustainable quality development with regard to demographic, economic, and geographic educational boundaries along with promoting life-long and personalised learning.

OERs are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use. MOOCs are a generic term used for all initiatives involving provision of online courses on a massive scale. In view of this, the seminar is designed to deliberate on various facets of OERs and MOOCs.
