Panel 1 hour

We would like to explore with our guests the role of the University in relation to the civil society, and the interventions it might support through the exploitation of MOOCs and OERs, paying a special attention to the listed perspectives.

• The role of MOOCs and OERs in the Nigerian scenario: young students who are not able to enter the university and have to wait till the next year, because of the lack of available seats (Jane-Frances Agbu).

• Creative Commons and the licensing of educational resources created in public universities: an alternative to restrictive all-rights-reserved copyright helping countries accomplish education goals in SDG4 by 2030 (Cable Green).

• Why OER are essential for elearning implementations (Rory McGreal).

• How OCW and MIT professors are supporting the spread of didactical innovation not only with OERs, but also with the description of the use educators do of OERs (Joseph Pickett).
