Rewatch the EDEN webinars from the Open Education Week 2019

Annually in March, the Open Education Consortium organises the Open Education Week, an event dedicated to the Open Education movement and its impact. This years' edition took place from 4th to 8th March and contained 190 events, from which 109 were held online. 6,494 participants were reached in total. Like in the previous years, the European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN) participated by providing a number of webinars. In this year there were 5 EDEN webinars, which were attended live by 370 participants from 38 different countries.

EDEN organized a couple of Webinars to mark the Open Education Week 2019.

 

Now, everyone has the possibility to watch the webinars again. Records are freely available and do not only contain video and audio footage, but also a re-live version of the participants chat as well as the presentations.
