Published on

Introduction to the NetGeners.Net pilot course.

The full title of this pilot course is “NetGeners.Net: The ne(x)t generation learner - Skills you need in lifelong learning knowledge and information societies”.

A pilot course in the light of free and open education!

This course is free: free to attend without any charge, free of cost for books or other materials, free for anyone independently of prior education; and free in terms of your personal time commitment that you decide to dedicate to it (Though we would like you to spend on a minimum 2 hours per week). The only thing you will need is a PC and internet access.

Participants of this course can expect tutoring (support), but will not receive any official degree awarding certificate or credit points from the course team.

This course starts at the 17th of March, though later participation is possible. If you are interested in the course than sign up now for free to secure individual mentorship and support!

We also invite you to provide us with some initial feedback on what you think could be improved, to report bugs (means to tell us what still doesn’t work as it should), to suggest further learning projects, or to submit already existing ones to our course category.

Further information is available at:

NetGeners.Net website

As an example: if you start a learning project in the area of “Content” you might want to focus on Wikipedia and show how you use Wikipedia to provide you with information. You might want to draw up some key points you use to evaluate quality and reliability of what you find at Wikipedia – or you might want to pull together indicators that others already provided to compare and discuss them.
