Question #1 Can you briefly: Introduce yourself? Describe your national/organizational context in relation to the issues and opportunities raised by the initiative?
Question #2 Based on the initial experience of the e-Learning Portal and building on the strong involvement of stakeholders, the Commission will launch, with Erasmus+ funding, a single gateway for OERs produced in Europe, federating existing platforms with advanced browsing and search features to help users find the appropriate content Do the panel think a single gateway of OERs produced in Europe is necessary or feasible?
Question #3 textbook authors, publishers and booksellers can contribute to joint collaborative efforts to find new innovative technical solutions ensuring that high-quality resources are available to all. What would the panel like to see publishers doing in response to the OUE initiative?
Question #4 Standards should also ensure that resources could be used across different platforms thus enhancing their effectiveness What should we aim to do now about standards? (for example given the different, closed ecosystems for mobile apps?)
Question #5 to develop quality frameworks for OER and mapping with curricula. This seems like a possible opportunity to propose a curriculum mapping project. What should we aim to do in such a project or how should it be structured?
Question #6 Are there any barriers that the panel foresees and if so what are some ways to overcome them?
Question #7 Can the panel shares any ideas for a broad response of MoEs and other stakeholders for potential projects?
