[EDEN-News] European Distance Learning Week 2016 – Resources Available

Note the follow-up on this item…

Circular head

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.

Frustrated With Your LMS?

From today’s inbox…

Online Learning Consortium - Twitter   Facebook   Instagram   YouTube
An Easier, Less Costly Alternative to BB
Hello Michael,

Jim Musgrave, an online educator who worked for Caltech and the San Diego Community Colleges for over fifteen years was sick and tired of using a complex LMS such as Blackboard that often couldn’t reach his students directly by mobile app.

Learn why and how he developed the Embellisher ™ Mobile Publishing, Education and Training platform.  It is a less complex, more collaborative method of leveraging a completely mobile and less costly way to teach your students.

Student-Centered Instruction Webinar
Nov. 29, 2016 | 1 PM (PST)
Register Now orange button.png
We will be covering:
  • Why a completely mobile, student-centered, teaching platform saves time and improves collaborative performance.
  • How to use AR and VR to create “empathetic” point-of-view.
  • How to give each author/teacher a publishing platform to feature live broadcasts of new books, book trailers, live chat with readers/students, and even “casting” a virtual book tour to bookstores and libraries that patrons can view on their mobile devices.
  • A guided tour of the main components of the platform: The ePub3 Creator Studio, The Embellisher ™ ePub3 eReader, The Php List Campaign eMail Program, The Lime Survey Program, and the Author and Reader Mobile Bulletin Board.

This webinar is for online educators, for-profit online educators, or ePub3 mobile publishers who want to sell courses directly to their students.

Bonus! All attendees will receive a free copy of Professor Jim Musgrave’s book, Running with the Big Dogs: A Creator’s Guide to Using Electronic Media. Also, if you teach online classes, he will give you an Insert-text Grammar Template to use when grading your students’ papers.
Join our free webinar on November 29, 2016 at 1 PM (PST). Register today.
