As a result of the impact of Covid-19, schools across Europe and the world had to close for long periods. Learning activities had to be conducted remotely. The massive transition of the European school system to online learning was facilitated by the large number of open educational resources available on the internet. OERs and MOOCs could be found in dedicated aggregator portals, institutional repositories curated by universities, foundations and public agencies or through individual recommendations by peers. Teachers were advised to actively search, use and share them.
In the webinar a number of experts, representing the European Commission, Unesco, universities, NGOs and the school system, will discuss how OER use and reuse has expanded during the pandemic and how this has contributed to support the quality of teaching and learning during these challenging times. They will also analyse what is the role of OERs in the ongoing digital transformation of schools.
