  • 11. 1. Teaser coursesopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union11• Pre-enrollment courses for a subject• Advantages:– Promotion of subjects– Discloses the difficulty level of the material– Facilitates students selecting subjects in their Learning Agreement– Students acquire background knowledge
  • 12. 1. Teaser courses. OCW to facilitatephysical – virtual mobility – experiencesat center of interactionsopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union12• OCW allows student interaction• Advantages:– Raising interest in certain material, program or professor– Coexistance between virtual and in-person education– Allows following online lessons from other universities– Native students can help other students ´´virtually´´
  • 13. 1. Teaser courses. OCW for contentlearning ahead of timeopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union13• OCW aimed to break the emotional barriers involvingmobility.• Advantages:– Encourage students to make mobility periods– Bringing students closer to the new educational institution– Reduce emotional obstacles to a mobility period– The student can compare universities or evaluate materials Increased confidence
  • 14. 2. Language OCW – support for languagelearning = vocabulary buildingopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union14• OCW helps acquiring communication skills in a language• Advantages prior to mobility:– Helps students to meet admission requirements of the chosenUniversity.– Facilitates academic and cultural integration in the chosen University• Advantages during mobility:– Support in the development of the language.• Virtual Mobility: only applies if you are looking to learn thelanguage
  • 15. 3. Bridging. Admissionopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union15• OCW required for admission to a program that requiresmobility.• Advantages:– The professor ensures homogeneity of knowledge among students inthe program.– Filter admission to a particular program.– Students acquire essential knowledge prior to mobility
  • 16. 4. Cultural/practical information (newcountry, new institution)opencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union16• OCW facilitating cultural integration and the new way of life inthe new educational center.• Advantages:– Facilitates stay during mobility– Adaptation into the new educational environment• Virtual Mobility: Fostering intercultural communication
  • 17. 5. OCW for transparency/comparison –credit transferopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union17• OCW that facilitates credit recognition• Advantages:– More accurate and objective credits assessment.– Facilitates collaboration between professors in the centers of originand destination.– Facilitates the international academic and research networking
  • 18. 6. New assessment + methodologies –business/companies give professionalcreditsopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union18• Professional courses with labor market recognition• Advantages:– Approaching to the labor market.– Specific knowledge for adaptation to the professional environment.– There is no need to attend classroom courses in a company or aninstitution.
  • 19. 7. Open environment can maintainbond to home universityopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union19• OCW facilitates the communication between institutions• Advantages:– Possibility of virtual community among institutions– Improved relationships between institutions– Facilitates mobility plan of the institutions– Students can maintain their communication with the home university
  • 20. Examplesopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union20Mario is the ECTS coordinator at ComputerScience College – UPM, Spain. He is incharge of the evaluation of the coursescontent his students could take at hostinstitutions, in order approve and to includethem in the Learning Agreement.He has always the same problem: a lot oftimes it is not possible to know in advancethe courses content his students want totake at host institution, sometimes becausethis information is not available on the website or sometimes because the informationis not updated. If the information is notavailable it may happen that at best theLearning agreement needs to be changedlater and at worst the course will not bevalidated at home university.But Mario finds out that some universitieshave their materials open, what helps himto know previously the accuracy of thecontents, the objective assessment of thecredits and the gradated system used. Thisinformation allows the coordinator to signthe students’ Learning Agreement with totalconfidence and guarantee. The OCWmaterials definitely help Mario to improvethe future recognition of the courses thestudents take at host institutions.Moreover, Mario starts collaboration withother teachers involved in the same topic heis working in. They are planning to create aninternational research group in a nearfuture.OCW for transparency/comparison – credit transfer

  • 23. Examplesopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union23Oskar studies Computer Science andMathematics at the Technische UniversitätDresden (TUD), Germany. He found thatUPM, Spain, offers OCW courses in severalareas of his interest. He decides to followone of these courses as self-leaner. He getsin contact to the professor. When hefinished the course his feelings about theexperience were really happy with thematerials, the knowledge he got and therelationship with the teacher.Now Oskar is thinking about the possibilityto spend a study period abroad and as hecan speak Spanish and he has goodmemories from his OCW experience, he isthinking to apply to Universidad Politécnicade Madrid (UPM), Spain, as ERASMUSstudent. He has been informed by his homeuniversity that there is an agreementbetween TUD and UPM, so he decides toapply for the exchange for next semester.Oskar has been admitted to spend asemester within ERASMUS programme atUPM. He is following the courses at UPM,but at the same time he needs to follow acourse at his home university. As hisuniversity also offers OCW courses hedecides to register one OCW course at TUDwhile stay at UPM. He can combine bothactivities during his stay in Spain.At the end of the semester Oskar hassuccessfully accomplished UPM courses andOCW course at TUD and when he will comeback home he will get his courses validated,both the UPM and the OCW ones.OCW to facilitate physical - virtual mobility - experiences at center of interactions

  • 25. Examplesopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union25Elena studies Computer Science at thePolytechnic University of Madrid. She isinterested in study a very specific course atTUM, but to register the course it ismandatory to have deep knowledge in thearea of () and at least she has got aminimum number of credits in the topic.She is worried because at this time it is notpossible for her to accomplish thisrequirement at home.Elena has not time to acquire the requestedknowledge within formal lectures in orderfor her to be admitted at TUM. She find outthat TUM offers OCW courses in the fieldshe needs to improve, so she thought that ifshe take this course in parallel to her studiesand go on till summer, she will likely get theknowledge and the credits required at TUM.She checks if she would be admitted at TUMtaking this OCW course. The answer fromTUM is positive.Therefore Elena registers in OCW course andcombines her formal studies at homeuniversity with this OCW course in order tofinish in summer just on time theapplication deadline at TUM.Elena sends her application to TUMincluding the results of the OCW course. Sheis eager to get the admission although she isa bit nervous. She gets the letter ofadmission from TUM to take the specificcourse she wants to deep in.Finally, in Germany, Elena does not haveunderstanding problems to proper followthe course because her knowledge aboutthe topic is really high and thus is allows herto get a high mark in the course.Bridging

  • 28. Mobility Case – Scenario 2: Language OCWopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union28Juan studies Computer Science at thePolytechnic University of Madrid. Hehas always liked Italian language, so hedecides to enroll his final year fromundergraduate studies in Rome. He isworried that his Italian is not enough topass the courses he needs in order tograduate.As Juan, does not have much time totake courses where attendance ismandatory, and require pre-establishedschedule, he chooses to take someOCW Italian courses offered by theUniversity where he is going to studynext year.During the summer, Juan is dedicatedto learn the language gradually throughthe different levels of the materialsthat make up the courses.When he is ready to travel to Italy, Juanis feeling so much confident, calm andassertive, as he is convinced thatbecause of what he has learned, thelinguistic limitations will be minimal.Finally, in Italy, Juan does not havecommunication problems. Socialrelations are made simpler, and he isable to understand the lessons taughtin college. Juan will end hisundergraduate studies in Italy withhigh marks.
  • 29. Mobility Case – Scenario 2: Language OCWopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union29• Didactics, learning styles , modular design– Analyze OCW user profile  student of Computer Science– Create generic Italian course– Create submodels of courses as user profile  Italian Course withspecific computer science (techical) vocabulary.
  • 30. Mobility Case – Scenario 2: Language OCWopencourseware.euwith the support of the Lifelong LearningProgramme of the European Union30• Added value of OCW:– Creating virtual communities where students help and supporteachother  Italian students resolve doubts to foreign students andcorrect their work– Creating videos in Italian by native and foreign students  Juan makesa video in Italian about an assignment, and can compare it with thoseof native students and have it corrected by them.
