openEdWorld – a world about Free / Open Education!

At this page we like to provide some insight into our work in the open education domain; as well as forming a community around this exiting field – thus be welcome to join in!

openEd World is all about open education, open educational services, self-organised online learning courses, peer-to-peer and community based learning ecosystems, open production and innovation networks, or new institutional approaches towards higher educational learning that potentially could provide a powerful means to improve the provision of basically unlimited numbers of learners with higher educational services in a cost-efficient and self-sustainable manner.

We invite you to browse through past and current projects, to take advantage of the comprehensive download section, or to get involved in our upcoming open educational services initiative.

openEdWorld is under the patronage of the CCG@UNU-MERIT team at the United Nations University.
