Open Education Week- The world wants to learn. The Open Education Week is a global, community event that seeks to raise awareness about the benefits of free and open sharing in education, especially Open Educational Resources (OER).
Open Education Week’s goal is to raise awareness about free and open educational opportunities that exist for everyone, everywhere, right now.
Organized by the OpenCourseWare Consortium the aim is to highlight how open education can help people meet their goals in education, whether that’s to develop skills and knowledge for work, supporting formal studies, learning something new for personal interest, or looking for additional teaching resources.
The Event takes place with both online and locally hosted events around the world. The Open Education Week Organizing Committee invites your contributions to and participation in the Open Education Week 2015. There are many ways you can contribute: upload an informational or inspirational video, host an event in your community, send links to resources about open education, hold a webinar, or even just promote Open Education Week in your social media networks.
