    "But school need not be your exclusive provider of learning. Just because you've finished your formal education, doesn't mean that your education is over!"

Advancing a vision of lifelong learning in 2030 - 0 views

  •  
    In the OER4Adults survey, we identified over 170 OER Initiatives across Europe and other countries (mainly the US). Many of these initiatives - those who provide OER for adult and lifelong learning - are from the higher education, vocational and school sectors. These initiatives assume that the primary users of OER are teachers and registered students, but the might not necessarily think about 'nonformal' learners.

MOOCs and exercise bikes - more in common than you'd think - 0 views

  •  
    "If you have an exercise bike in the back room, you could be the small selection of people that use it everyday to get fit. But then again, you could be one of many more who bought it in the hope of regular practice but were unable to make it part of your routine. The MOOC or Massive Open Online Course, which has come to prominence this year, often has much the same effect. Students may enrol in the online free courses from prestigious universities in their tens of thousands, but overwhelmingly they bomb out with attrition rates up to 80-90%."
