Robert Farrow's curator insight, February 23, 5:19 AM

The survey explored views and practices of HEIs on a broad and wide range of OE elements. Overall, some degree of commitment to and engagement in the different forms of Open Education covered by the survey was present in most of the countries surveyed by the study.

The main findings of the survey are presented below:

 

-  Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in face-to-face educational settings is common: Blended learning is much more widely adopted by HEIs than fully online courses or study programmes. Blended learning is perceived by university managers as the most effective way of delivering education.

 

-  The offer of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) is growing but still not widespread: One fifth of the surveyed HEIs stated that they offer at least one MOOC. In addition, about a quarter of the HEIs that are not offering MOOCs at the moment intend to do so in the future. However, this situation varies among countries, ranging from France, where both, the current MOOCs offer and the intentions to offer MOOCs in the future are high, to others like Germany where both current and planned MOOC offers are low. Poland falls between the two extremes: however, though it currently offers low numbers of MOOCs, it has considerable growth potential reflected in the high percentage of HEIs intending to offer MOOCs in the future.

 

-  Recognition of MOOC learning is rare: In all 5 countries studied, HEIs usually lack recognition mechanisms; even in cases where MOOC certificates are based on reliable ways of assessment and linked to a specific number of ECTS. This indicates there is little awareness and/or trust in providing recognition of learning through MOOCs.

 

-  Open Educational Resources (OER) are widely used: More than 50% of HEIs support the use of OER within their institution. In contrast, only just over one third of HEIs support the development (and offer) of OER. Most of those HEIs that use OERs do so to supplement classical face-to-face instruction and do not substitute core learning materials for OER.  Collaboration occurs within national borders: Cross-border collaboration among institutions is less frequent than local or national collaboration. Cross-border collaboration in MOOCs is even less frequent than in other areas. In national collaboration, countries differ. At national level, French HEIs collaborate the most and Polish ones the least. Cross-border collaboration, however, is rare among HEIs of all five countries.

 

- HEIs have different motivations for engaging in Open Education: Promotion and visibility of the institution as well as reaching more students are the strongest drivers for HEIs to engage with Open Education. Enhancing the quality of education is also an important motivation. Institutions are less convinced about the financial benefits as a major driver for engaging in Open Education. HEIs offering OER give more importance to institutional strategies which emphasise "free access to education". Institutions which offer MOOCs see this social aim as less important.

 

- Skills and recognition are the most important barriers: The main reasons for HEIs not to engage in OE practices are that academic staff is not skilled to use Open Education and also the difficulties associated with formal recognition of Open Education. Pedagogical issues are reported as less important challenges.


- Lecturers get support to engage in Open Education but rarely in terms of career development: Lecturers involved in OE receive mainly technical support, and in half of the cases also some training. Less common are support mechanism related to time allocation for the development of OE, and its recognition for career development.
