Topic 2: Open Learning – sharing and openness

We hope you are now getting familiar with the course set-up and have enjoyed working in your PBL groups on the first topic.

Now we move on to a central element in this course; the topic of openness. Education has mostly been run in relatively closed environments like classrooms, lecture halls and learning management systems. Today however education is opening up. Teachers are sharing their resources, institutions are making their course material publicly available and even offering them for free.

Most of you have now started writing your blogs and there have been some very impressive efforts so far. One way of keeping track of the latest posts is by checking our ONL171 Blog Roll regularly. Here you’ll see the latest posts from all members of ONL171, just scroll down to see more. Dip in now and again and comment on posts you find interesting! If you can’t find your latest post here, contact your facilitator.

We would also like to remind you to keep up to date with your own reflective blog posts and update your progress in the activity tracker.
