Analysis of successful modes for the implementation and use of open course ware (OCW) & open educational resources (OER) in higher education. The virtual mobility case
This paper presents results from research on the use of OCW and OER in Higher Education (HE). The research was carried out with leaders of OCW/OER initiatives at HE Institutions and Organizations around the world. The aim was to identify successful practices for implementation and use of OCW/OER in HE and to investigate how OCW/OER could facilitate student virtual mobility. This work has been planned as part of the project “OpenCourseWare (OCW) in the European HE context” carried out with the support of the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union. The focus of the project is the creation of preconditions for a strong European/OCW framework and, as a consequence, a decline of obstacles to cooperation between European institutes, and therefore an increase in real student mobility.
