Openness to learners

As stated earlier, Massive Open Online Courses should be designed as open as possible, in such a way that all unnecessary barriers to learning are removed, both at the entry into learning and along the learning path. We distinguish the following dimensions:

freeofchargeFree of charge: you have a full course experience free-of-charge. For additional services, like personal tutoring or doing a formal exam for obtaining a ECTS certificate, there will be some cost involved.

freeadmittance2Free admittance: we apply an open entry policy. I.e. anyone can basically participate regardless of prior education; you don’t need diplomas to participate in a course. However, that doesn’t imply that MOOCs are only offered at novice level.
All MOOCs require some basic skills of ict and language skills by definition. And there are courses that require extensive prior knowledge and skills. But these knowledge and skills are not tested beforehand, nor are any formal qualification needed to enter the course.

Icon open accessibilityOpen Accessibility: course can always be accessed by anyone anywhere as long as they have an internet connection.

anywhere-onlineLearn anywhere online: we apply the freedom of place: you can study at home, at work, at a library, virtual classroom, on a train or a plane, abroad, on a boat etc.

anytimeStart anytime: you can begin a course at any point during the year and study at any time.

Icon self pacedSelf-paced: you can basically determine your own pace and schedule.
We emphasise that self-paced MOOCs will need to be finished with some kind of recognition and consequently have an end date (set by you as learner).

12diflanguagesOpenupEd cherishes diversity in languages and cultures, a spectrum of approaches and contexts, accounting for variety and profiling. We see diversity as one of the key advantages of new learning technologies. We are open to all people : the population is very varied, comprises all ages and has a wide range of contexts.

Icon open programmingOpen programming:  the programmes involve certain freedoms as regards their content and order; you can take and if necessary combine modules/courses as you wish; there are partial programmes and complete open programmes

A 100% score on all dimensions is very rare. Most of them, however, do apply to the OpenupEd courses. Exceptions are the freedom of time and the freedom of pace for those courses that have a fixed starting date and a set schedule.

In a broader perspective this feature stresses the importance to be open to learners' needs. I.e. education should be affordable, rewarding, good quality, feasible, enjoyable, but also with freedom of time / pace / place, open entry, open programming, credentialing, bridge between formal and informal learning, lifelong learning, .... 

#K7MrB3# thinking she's gotten past dealing with her Use stripes correctly. Stripes can be your figure flattering best friend, or your worst fashion enemy. The trick is knowing when and how to use them. Get your materials. You will need a watch face. You can use one from any old watch, as long as it's still working. Grosgrain Fabulous also has a fantastic tutorial for re sizing sweaters. I have already re sized quite a few of my boxy sweaters to a more fitting (and flattering) size. Resizing is as simple as this: turn your sweater inside out; put it on; pin the excess; take it off; sew along the pins.. The fabric used in the manufacturer of swim suits was also reduced causing the disappearance of the little skirt flap so popular on one piece suits. Fabric reduction was responsible for bare midriffs and the introduction of the 2 piece swim suit. Many women wore flat heeled shoes for safety and comfort in the workplace. Whichever you prefer, be sure there are smaller pockets for your wallet, keys, phone and pens. Women should also have a purse or clutch for dates or parties. Sunglasses, stylish belts and a variety of jewelry, from small and simple to big and bright, will transform any outfit. Sift powdered sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle pastries before serving at room temperature. If not serving the same day, stack the pastries in airtight plastic containers and freeze for up to 2 weeks. To serve, reheat to freshen in a 325 degree preheated oven for about 7 to 12 minutes or until warm, cool slightly, and decorate with powdered sugar and cinnamon.. In short, I am hooked. I have found exactly what I want and need, with lower prices to boot. I never would have believed it. Is most of your height in your torso or legs? for me it in my torso, meaning that i need to be very careful about what shirts i pick. 34" waist + 34" inseam seams to work fine for me. Shirt wise . Wholesale fashion accessories might include items like handbags, bracelets, wallets for men, necklaces and pendants, as well as earrings. These can be found in different designs and fashions, and are all manufactured from different materials. As a business owner, you have to be able to determine what consumers ask for most, so that as soon as you are certain, you are able to buy it in wholesale.. The Review!Media Blasters has a pretty good selection of mixes here with four audio tracks, two of which are relatively unnecessary if DVD players are built properly. The Japanese and English language mixes are presented in both a 5.1 mix and a 2.0 mix to ensure the best overall playback. The stereo mixes are done in a standard minimal 192kbps encoding while the 5.1 mixes get the full 448kbps. drapekings1 oiselle amazonpressroom citybbqs xvideos-v amazonsweetshow awweather slimvapepencoupon freeradio aetc top5pokemon viuedu prestonacuk
