Today the EU-StORe OER and Learning Scenario Conference started at LUMSA Univesity in Rome, Italy. The partners are discussing the OER quality criteria and process of rating OER according to these critera. Moreover, the design of scenarios and showcases for the use of OER in educational contexts is one of the main aspects.
The next EU-StORe meeting will take place in Rome, Italy this month:
Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner, who had the idea for the EU-StORe project and the OER standard development, presented the OER data base in his university lectures at the university of Paderborn with student of economics and future VET teachers. There was a discussion about OER and the students try to use the standards and talk about their Pros and Cons.
A happy new year to all who are interested in the project EU-StORe, in open educational resources, quality in eLearning, the EU-StORe partnership and in pedagogical work with new media.

Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner discussed on visualisation at the KOMDIM workshop in Duisburg.
The visualisations of creative thinking processes as well as project and meeting results can be used as OERs in learning processes as well. Moreover the documentation of learning processes in groups can also be done in a way classical and graphic recording. Especially, for schools and teachers who use moderation techniques in their teaching graphic recording could be really a helpful tool. The illustration as an OER also offers the opportunity to provide other people with an visual approach to the topic.
Tomorrow, we will have a meeting with teacher students who will be informed about the new quality criteria of EU-StORe. Moreover, we will discuss the use or OER in schools and the use of such materials.
In the last four weeks several projects and OER providers contacted us to be inserted in the EU-StORE database or with the wish to use the EU-StORe quality criteria. These questions show how important the work of EU-StORe is. Moreover, this indicates that quality in the field of OER is seen as an essential and really needed.
