Business and Management Competencies in a Web 2.0 world
openED 2.0 [http://www.open-ed.eu/] is a FREE and OPEN online course for business students and practitioners alike. The course consists of 10 distance learning modules which should each last between 2-3 weeks. This website provides all you need:
+ Learning materials
+ Suggested activities
+ Forums for meeting people and discussion
+ Calendar of the live chat sessions scheduled
+ Repository to save your assignments
+ Mechanisms for providing peer assessment and support
+ Records of previous participants work
+ Help in getting started with open learning
You can participate in any combination of the 10 modules and, whilst most people will probably want to study the course, we also offer the chance for you to help teach it or to help moderate the forums. The next formal round of the course (this will be supported by the openED team) starts in November 2011.
