Project Title: “Designing for participatory learning in open educational environments” – OpenED 2.0

The web 2.0 in general and the Open Source world in particular shows how volunteer collaboration can result in innovative products and good learning opportunities at the same time. We want to find out what happens using approaches from that community to break barriers between teachers and learners to design and co-construct sites for participatory learning. Content creation, knowledge exchange, community dynamics, and the impact on the boundary between formal and informal education are key subjects of the project.

They objective of the project is to evaluate the applicability of such approaches to support free/open learning provision within cross-cultural and multilingual settings. Particular attention is to be paid to factors such as: the evolution of content and communities; the speed of innovation; the quality of learning provision and learning outcomes; and possible revenue models.
