EADTU is partner of "Elearning, Communication and Open-data: Massive Mobile, Ubiquitous and Open Learning" (ECO, 2014-2017). This project with 24 partners focuses on extending the most successful MOOC experiences in Europe to a pan-European scale by piloting and showcasing these best practices by its implementation in regional hubs of excellence throughout Europe.
Open Educational Innovation & Incubation (OEII, 2010-2013) formulated recommendations on the organisation of a (more) transparently organised, and sustainable, university-market interface.
Erasmus project, 'The lived experience of climate change: e-learning and virtual mobility' (LECHe, 2010-2012). The LECH-e project developed three 100-150 hour modules and a water case study published as OER. They were designed to maximise flexibility of use for diverse audiences.
Open Educational Resources in Higher Education (OER HE, 2009-2011). The 3 Best Practice Reports have examined evidence from the literature and from the partners' case studies to identify the role that OER might play in (1) widening participation, (2) multi campus education and (3) team-based internationalisation.
