Open Education, OpenCourseWare and Student Mobility

Do the OCW EU Student Mobility survey!

OpenCourseWare has had a profound influence on the way students learn, by making high-quality learning materials available through popular search engines. It has meant, e.g. that students can compare their course with the one from MIT on the same subject, but also, that they can often explore beforehand how a particular university engages a subject, stimulating student exchange.

With this survey, we want to explore how students perceive Open Education in relation to student mobility. So if you are a student – in the broadest sense of the term, ranging from a full-time student to a professional who takes a course in the context of LifeLong Learning  – or a teacher, a university policy maker or an educational professional, you might want to share your views on:

  • How well do you know Open Education and its many forms, such as OpenCourseWare, MOOC’s, OER etc., ?
  • What are your experiences with Open Education?
  • What are your motivations to learn from Open Courses?
  • Do you have specific expectations toward Open Education?
  • How important is openness for you, for your work, your study?

We also want you to take a look at different scenarios that we have identified where OpenCourseWare can play a role in student mobility.  Which are the scenarios that you find most appealing? The scenarios that we present range from exploring teaser courses at other universities over facilitation of your stay abroad and later keeping in contact with the content, teachers and fellow students when back home.

And of course, we want to hear from you, your experiences and opinion. How do you see Open Courses in future education?

The results of this survey will be used to formulate guidelines for universities that want to develop OpenCourseWare courses and are interested in stimulating student mobility. These guidelines will be available online and communicated through the OpenCourseWare consortium network. It will help to design OpenCourseWare courses that better fit the needs of those students that want to open up their curriculum through mobility and student exchange.

We kindly ask you to take 15 minutes of time to complete the survey. It targets at any potential OCW user (which is nearly anyone) and can be completed anonymously. Feel free to distribute this link in your network:

The results of the survey will published in several articles, workshops and conference presentations by the members of the OpenCourseWare Europe project.

Ánimo, suerte y al toro...
Si es posible, intentaré seguiros en abierto, obligaciones mandan

He seguido cursos en dicha plataforma y contenidos, tengo que decir que, facilita el estudio, pero también que cuando existe una buena elaboración, seguimiento...funciona; en caso contrario, si sólo es un apéndice de unos contenidos que, luego no cuentan en una evaluación presencial, distinta, que prima aprendizajes memorísticos, nos servirá de nada (gravando a personas muy válidas).
Un cordial saludo.

PD. Tengo experiencias muy positivas y también algunas bastante negativas.
