Qualification and cooperative support for OER - a buffet of cooperation (JOINTLY)

Project Goals

The JOINTLY project is located under the umbrella of the BMBF “OERinfo” program to promote open education materials. OER - Open Educational Resources are free learning and teaching materials combined with an open license such as Creative Commons or GNU General Public License.

The joint project JOINTLY supports OER players in the development and dissemination of their open educational materials and organizes knowledge transfer and cooperation activities. For this concepts, contents and solutions, which were developed within project-internal co-operations, are discussed and evaluated by experts. The project promotes the acquisition and exploitation of proven knowledge for OER or IT practice. Webinars, seminars and workshops are offered for the transfer of knowledge. One focus is on advice from experts in the fields of law, production, didactics and computer science. In addition, the project will jointly develop OER-beneficial software tools as well as labor and distribution instruments. For experts and decision-makers from the fields of education, politics and society, a specific discourse platform for the exchange shall be established.
