EC Consultation on Open Education Resources

The European Commission (EC) recently launched a public consultation to assess the need for EU action to promote access to Open Education Resources (OER) and the use of ICT in education. Knowledge has become increasingly available thanks to the use of ICT in education which has also allowed more flexible and creative ways of learning. Respondents to the consultation are invited to share their opinion on the priorities for the development of OER in Europe. The results of the consultation will feed into a new EC Communication entitled ‘Rethinking Skills’ that will be presented in the last quarter of 2012. This consultation is open until 13 November. Take Part in this Consultation
