  15. 15. Educational argumentsPresence in the educational world Use open courses to show to candidate students what your education looks like Take away their doubts about the educational culture and the level of courses at university: "will I be able to understand the scientific articles that are part of the course materials at university?"Use open courses to give students extra study support By opening up stumble courses and providing them with weblectures, students can rewatch the lecture. They get a second chance to understand the learning content. Use open courses to support students with learning difficulties or disabilities Easily adapt learning materials to e.g. visually impaired students. Or provide weblectures with subtitles to help hearing-impaired students. Teach your students in a "flipped classroom" system Let them gather the information by taking an Open Course, online, before they come to class. In the classroom you can come to deep level learning using interaction between students.
