Final Set of eQNet Travel Well Criteria is now available

The Quality Network for a European Learning Resource Exchange (eQNet) has been developing and testing quality criteria that will enable repository owners and content developers/publishers in both the public and private sector to identify learning resources that have the potential for cross-border re-use, and thus can be said to 'travel well'. The final version of the Travel Well Criteria v. 3 (consisting of seven criteria, including three mandatory criteria), is now available on the eQNet wiki.  The final criteria have been shown to be suitable for practical evaluation of learning resources for use by European policy-makers, publishers, practitioners (e.g. teachers and learners) and expert evaluators. The efficacy of the Travel Well Criteria v. 3 was repeatedly tested in a real-life setting, as the criteria were successfully applied to improve the quality of open learning content in the Learning Resource Exchange for schools (LRE) in 2011 and 2012. This work resulted in a showcase of more than 5,000 ‘travel well’ resources.  The application of the Travel Well Criteria v. 3 to improve the quality of Learning Resource Exchange’s content continues as new collections are evaluated and those with 'travel well' potential are added to the LRE.

eQNet travel well showcase at EdReNe Strategic Seminar - Lisbon

eQNet is co-sponsoring the 8th Educational Repositories (EdReNe) Seminar, taking place on 7-8 May in Lisbon, Portugal. EdReNe is a thematic network, bringing together web-based repositories of learning resources with content owners and other educational stakeholder, in order to share, develop, and document procedures, experiences, and strategies, on the organisation and functionality of online repositories.

eQNet partners will present on the travel well criteria of online resources, describing experiences of applying travel well criteria to improve the content quality of the Learning Resources Exchange for Schools. The event is organised by the DGIDC – the Portuguese Ministry of Education. For more information on the seminar, see edrene.org.

Open Educational Quality Initiative (OPAL) Consultative Group Meetings

UNESCO and the European Foundation for Quality in E-Learning (EFQUEL) have invited representatives of organizations working with quality, OER and educational policy to attend the first 2011 meeting of the Open Educational Quality Initiative (OPAL) Consultative Group. The meeting will be held online on Wednesday 25 May at 13.00 Central European Time, and repeated at 13.00 Pacific Time on Monday 30 May.

OPAL (http://oer-quality.org/)  is a flagship initiative being implemented by a group of organizations including UNESCO, EFQUEL and ICDE and includes representatives of leading institutions from within higher education and adult education.

The initiative believes that although OER are high on the agenda of social and inclusion policies, their use in higher education and adult education has not reached a critical threshold. The focus has been placed on building access to digital content, while the challenge now is to support educational practices and to promote quality and innovation in teaching and learning.

The aim of the OPAL Consultative Group -  a multi-stakeholder network of high level organizations working with quality, OER and educational policy – is to:

  • raise awareness,
  • exchange and define good practices,
  • take stock of the latest activities in the field, and
  • suggest ways forward to enhance and increase the adoption of open practices

The Consultative Group will initially meet twice per year for 2-3 hours through a webinar. For more on this initiative see: http://goo.gl/7AwIY
