The 'MOOCs and OpenupEd' initiative well represented at the conference

MOOCs are nowadays an important driver in the transition to open and online education and therefore a dedicated strand of the 2013 conference.

The popularity of MOOCs is also reflected in the number of abstracts received also in direct relation to the new OpenupEd initiative. The strand 'MOOCs and OpenupEd' now offers a 2 day programme on how MOOCs can contribute to the opening of education, increase accessibility, innovates the ways we educate, influence assessment and business models and even can change the education system.

In addition a special Masterclass on the role of MOOCs in Higher Education is offered as a pre-conference event.
