Scientix is financed under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development, eQNet was supported by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme. eQNet - Quality Network for European Learning Resource Exchange (2009 – 2012) http://eqnet.eun.org/ Supported by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP) Consortium: EUN and nine Ministries of education in Europe Goal: ● Enable sharing of Open Educational Resources on a large scale ● Streamline their evaluation Result: Travel Well criteria A set of metadata, describing OERs that allow for identifying digital learning content that has a high potential to be re-used across national and linguistic boudaries.
  5. 5. Scientix is financed under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development, eQNet was supported by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme. Travel Well Travel Well criteria – methodology: Expert teachers assessed learning objects in LRE for their travel well potential. Analysis of the assessments: ● What criteria teachers considered most relevant? ● Were there some criteria difficult to apply or deemed less relevant? Result : ● Travel Well criteria are suitable for pratical evaluation and can noticeably reduce the subjectivity inherent in expert evaluation. ● Showcase of 3,500 Travel Well resources, another 2,000 added since then
  6. 6. Scientix is financed under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Development, eQNet was supported by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme. Travel Well criteria 1. Translational topics 2. Knowledge of specific language is not needed (language independence) 3. Stored as a file type that is usable with generally available software 4. Methodological support for teachers in not needed 5. Intuitive and easy to use (no complex operating instructions) 6. Interactivity 7. Clear licence status
