ABOUT THE SEMINAR:
Higher education institutions around the world are incorporating Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to develop teaching, learning and research to bridge the educational divides. As defined by UNESCO “Digital learning resources offered online, freely and openly to teachers, students and independent learners in order to be used, adapted, and expanded in teaching, learning and research. They include learning content, software tools to develop, use and distribute, as well as implementation resources.” Recently, Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have gained momentum in education and research. Further, it exemplified the dimensions of the researchers for potential and sustainable quality development with regard to demographic, economic, and geographic educational boundaries along with promoting life-long and personalized learning. OERs are teaching, learning and research resources that reside in public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use. MOOC is a generic term used for all initiatives involving provision of online courses on a massive scale. In view of this, the seminar is designed to deliberate on various facets of OERs and MOOCs.
