MOOC "Using and creating OER"

Based on the previous Austrian online courses, the OER MOOC was redesigned and produced in a uniform design. The MOOC has been freely available on the iMooX platform since 3 March 2022 and can be attended and completed at any time in self-study, independent of time and place. Graduates receive a certificate of participation

Online-Course "Using and creating OER"

Supervised OER-Training

Until 2024, (teaching) staff of all Austrian higher education institutions have several opportunities to complete a supervised OER continuing education course free of charge. Including the OER MOOC, participants receive a comprehensive overview of the theory and practice of OER; the workload is 25 hours. After completing the training, graduates have the opportunity to be certified as "OER practitioners".

Within the framework of Open Education Austria Advanced, a train-the-trainer:in concept will be developed and piloted in 2023. Participants will acquire the skills to create, implement and evaluate an OER teaching concept. After completing the training, graduates have the opportunity to conduct their own supervised OER training.
