This topic I experienced that our PBL group has a lot of own experience to share with the rest of the group and that´s real interesting to take part of and to have a more “direct” use in. But I also yhink, as the scenario tells us, many people are afraid of use and share and publish, and get a feeling of loneliness with this, while they give up. That´s a sad situation. Cause using these sources of OER has so many potentials, benefits like saving money, a shared possibility to develop new and productive ideas, get a lots of help from each other, teamwork and collaborating, you have to communicate in any kind of way, I think it’s a good way to get a picture of how creative the learners are and how much the collaborate and help each other, the “classroom is bigger and wider. Yes, as you can see, there are a real chance you can´t lose. My eyes has become more open and wider, and also more curios than afraid, and that´s particularly because of our PBL work , amazing, how people with different backgrounds and experiences can get som much from each other – use it and don´t lose it.
I also have been wondering the last weeks about how this is going to look like for about 50 years, how will this have developed? Some of these future-questions were discussed European Commission at a workshop https://ec.europa.eu/futurium/en/content/what-future-open-access-publishing
One of the main questions were how the future will look like and a document for some guidelines, which were intended to contextualize and clarify the rules on open access covering beneficiaries in projects funded or co-funded under Horizon 2020 http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/data/ref/h2020/grants_manual/hi/oa_pilot/h2020-hi-oa-pilot-guide_en.pdf
For me, as a beginner I think this document is a great way of starting and trying to use this, both for myself and also from a student perspective, don´t you agree with me. I feel now, more comfortable in what this is, and how I could use them and use I have the courage to try them, use them and recommend them, and I think this is future, and what we will see more of and what will this ONL course look like in a future perspective?
