Abstract: EDEN is proud to be the European strategic partner of ASCILITE and contribute to the ASCILITE LIVE! webinar series. This webinar focuses on the problems and solutions of a learning designer in the context of open learning. Denes Zarka will explore what "open" stands for in the context of learning resources and present various models for the use and re-use of Open Educational Resources (OERs). Denes will tell the participants why he designs open content and also why others design open content. You will learn about sustainable models for OERs and you can think together with fellow webinar participants and Denes about questions like "is a free course a MOOC already?" or if a free presentation can be considered an OER.

Registration: EDEN will issue open badges to the webinar participants – in order to receive the participant badge (and the link to the recording of the webinar) you are kindly requested to share your e-mail address via the short online registration form REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.
