  4. 4. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? FRAGMENTATION European initiatives have been isolated and fragmented The European Commission
  5. 5. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM The collaboration of (pan-)European HEI in the development of new educational solutions which could otherwise be out of reach if designed by each institution on its own
  6. 6. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES ECONOMIES OF SCALE Economies of scale that bring down the cost of development of didactical models and educational materials
  7. 7. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES SHARED SERVICES Aggregate the contributes of the actual initiatives and provide the scaffold for a series of shared services like registration, single sign-on, LMS integration and partner agreements on badge/ credit transfer and/or networked curricula
  8. 8. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES LEARNING ANALYTICS The scale of the platform could generate enough information about learner’s activity that would give rise to personalised learning environments that adapt to the learner’s needs in order to secure completion
  9. 9. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE A common open source software infrastructure would facilitate the implementation and maintenance as well as its continuous improvement
  10. 10. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES OER Open licensing is making it easier to share the effort involved in developing educational resources and it may enable new institutions to start open and distance learning programmes more easily and with less initial cost
  11. 11. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES OPENUPED QUALITY LABEL The use of a shared quality label, specifically tailored to e-learning, can assure an educational experience that can bridge informal and formal learning, providing recognition for students’ achievements
  12. 12. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES EUROPEAN LEARNER PROFILE A profile to aggregate student's academic achievements and provide integration with career services and professional orientated social networking platforms like LinkedIn
  13. 13. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? ADVANTAGES ACCESSIBILITY For students that have geographical or economic limitations, or even health disabilities, have the possibility to experience foreign cultures through the contact with international learning communities
  14. 14. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? BARRIERS ASSESSMENT AND ACCREDITATION It is necessary to develop a regulatory framework to allow the unbundling of course design, provision and certification, and OER assessment to happen on a credit-equivalence basis by independent providers A major hurdle to the integration of open learning with formal learning due to the lack of international accreditation and assessment services
  15. 15. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? BARRIERS RECOGNITION OF PRIOR LEARNING (RPL) Initiatives to share resources in the RPL should be piloted and deployed, so that the equivalent learning based on the same resources does not need to be checked on multiple occasions Already in innovative practice in many institutions but usually has deeply idiosyncratic, labor-intensive and not particularly cost-effective or scalable institutional policies
  16. 16. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? BARRIERS OER ADOPTION There must be a strong base of support within institutions – both in terms of leadership and resources, and an existing culture of openness, including policies and practices around the creation and use of OER Universities are still reticent to reuse openly licensed courses and the lack of availability of committed staff members and support from senior management
  17. 17. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? BARRIERS ADMINISTRATION Again, there must be a strong base of support within institutions, governments and European Commission Administrative and bureaucratic difficulties of managing a project with a large number and variety of stakeholders
  18. 18. DO WE NEED A SHARED EUROPEAN MOOC PLATFORM? MOOCs w/ Open Source Software & OER INSTITUTIONS European Learner Profile w/ LinkedIn and other social network integration, badges, etc. EUROPEAN SHARED MOOC PLATFORM OpenupEd Quality Label Course creation Student credits Networked curricula Shared services (registration, single sign-on, etc.) Learning analytics Student curricula
