European Distance Learning Week
Organised by EDEN

Resources Available

EDEN successfully organised the first European Distance Learning Week on 7-11 November.

5 webinars with 354 registered participants were held. The participants came from 41 different countries including 15 countries from outside Europe from Canada to Brazil, from South Africa to Nepal, encompassing all 4 continents (Europe, Asia, Africa, America) and demonstrating a strong geographical coverage and a substantial outreach.

123 participants eventually turned up. 27 facilitators contributed to the successful implementation of this initiative, among them representatives of the European Commission and the Lifelong Learning Platform. EDEN thanks the valuable contribution of the facilitators and hope that this initiative successfully contributed to the European dialog about the present state and the future of open and distance learning. All participants and facilitators received EDEN open badges for their contribution.

The presenters’ slides can be viewed on EDEN’s SlideShare page

Based on the success of the first year, we hope that we can maintain the interest in the subject and European Distance Learning Weeks will be organised also in the coming year.
