Open Content for Management Education: How to find, use and share free online materials for management education?
The OpenScout project recorded a series of four webinars showing you how you can take full advantage of Business and Management Open Educational Resources (OER). Do you also recognize a growing need to improve your Business and Management skills but are confronted with a lack of time or financial resources to keep up with the latest developments? Are you a student in Business and would like to learn with high-quality, up-to-date, yet free learning materials? Are you a teacher of Business and Management and would like to re-use or adapt existing learning materials of competent peers to enhance your learning offerings? Are you a Business and Management institution looking for new distribution channels for your open learning materials?
In our OpenScout webinar series we show how you can use Open Educational Resources (OER) for these different Business and Management education needs. OER are digital learning materials (courses, presentations, articles, videos, etc.) that can be freely used and adapted for training purposes. We have in particular introduced you to the OpenScout portal learn.openscout.net which provides a range of free services to anyone who wishes to learn or teach management topics using Open Educational Resources. OpenScout's search engine accesses all the available resources in reliable OER repositories and offers filtered searches by key word, competence or tag. In addition there is a library of tools for adapting these resources and social media functions to allow you to interact with users who have similar interests.
