Nuffic and PIE are organising this seminar to give the audience an exciting and concrete experience with Open Education Resouces (OER). Examples from projects in Africa and Yemen will give a broader perspective on the e-learning environment in this part of the world. The seminar will be concluded by a discussion with a panel of experts and the audience.

One week before the seminar, participants will be invited to take part in a mini MOOC: ‘Getting Started With Open Education’, for a first-hand experience of online education. At the end of each slot, the audience will be invited to ask questions.
