OE Global 2019 has ended
Welcome to OE Global19!

To help you plan your participation the conference program schedule can be filtered by date, venue, session type, and session format using the Filter functions.

Filter by Date lets you look at a specific day of the program.
Filter by Venue lets you look at the program by venue rooms where sessions are taking place.
Filter by Type lets you look at the program by track. In addition to keynotes and breaks the program is made up of three main tracks or types of sessions Pedagogy, Roles, and Strategies.
Clicking on a type in Filter by Type lets you see only sessions of that type in the program schedule.
In addition, Pedagogy, Roles, and Strategies each have a set of associated topics. Topics appear when you hover over a type name in the Filter by Type area of Sched. Topics are clickable allowing you to further filter the program by topic.
Session Format lets you view the program by types of sessions - Action Labs, Lightning Talks, Posters, Presentations, and World Cafes.

The conference program is rich and diverse representing the current state of open education around the world.

The story of the MOOC that became OER

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

MOOCs have gained more and more attention from different stakeholders, with the purpose of enhancing the learning process and providing different ways to deliver educational contents.
Politecnico di Milano was the first Italian technical university to develop a MOOC platform, Polimi Open Knowledge (POK). The purpose of POK was to bridge the gaps, providing, for instance, contents to fill in the gap between high school and university. The platform was launched in August 2014 with two courses: Introduction to physics and PreCalculus.
In this work, we go through the five years long life of PreCalculus MOOC, the first Italian MOOC on Mathematics. In the beginning, the course was just copyright protected, because it was produced to provide an online course to recall and recap the essential mathematics for enrolling in a STEM program. At a certain point, the course has also been used within the design of a new hybrid preparatory course, devoted to first-year students at Politecnico di Milano. Then, the MOOC has become part of a research project, called “FlipMath”, aimed at introducing the flipped classroom methodology in high school math classrooms. Finally, the MOOC was used as part of the math course for the first-year students in Architecture at Politecnico di Milano.
It is worth noticing that the first idea that prompts to design and produce this MOOC has been transforming. Therefore, the copyright protection by itself became too restricted and did not fit anymore the actual use of this set of educational materials.
If we look at the evolution of the different MOOC uses, this process leads to rethink the opportunity of adopting a CC license, thus making the MOOC an OER in itself, as a whole, and a collection of OER, as a learning path built with different materials (videos, texts, exercises, etc).
