  3. 3. Open Education Definition Core and Transversal Dimensions Open education is a mode of realising education, enabled by digital technologies aiming to widen access and participation to everyone. It offers multiple ways of teaching and learning, building and sharing knowledge, as well as a variety of access routes to formal and non- formal education, bridging them. Open education means access to content, courses, support, assessment and certification in ways that are flexible, and accommodate diverse needs. Barriers, as regards for example entry or cost, are reduced or eliminated.

  4. 4. 1. Ongoing innovation of the blended courses, integration of OERs and MOOCs: • course / practical activity recognition for participating in MOOCs • integrating MOOCs in university courses. 2. Continuing training of teachers: • participation in MOOCs related to open education, but also to topics of courses and research directions • community of practice for teachers to exchange good practice, peer-mentoring. 3. Active participation in the Coalition for Open Educational Resources. 4. Co-organizing conferences and workshops related to open education: OEE Tour 2015, OEW Tm, eLSE Workshop, SMART Conference. 5. Issue certificates on Blockchain Open Education Practices at University “Ioan Slavici” of Timisoara
  5. 5. Blending MOOCs in university courses „We are taking what we are learning and the technologies we are developing in the large and applying them in the small to create a blended model of education to really reinvent and reimagine the classroom.” We need to go from lectures on the blackboard to online exercises, online videos. We have to go to interactive virtual laboratories and gamification. To go to completely online grading and peer interaction and discussion boards. Everything really has to change.” Anant Agarwal, 2013. Why massive open online courses (still) matter. A TED presentation, ted.com/talks/anant_agarwal_why_massively_open_online_courses_still_matter.html
