França anuncia universidade para cursos abertos online

Governo francês abriu universidade para cursos abertos online

O Ministério de Educação Superior da França anunciou o lançamento de sua versão de cursos abertos online, também conhecidos na sigla em inglês como MOOC (massive open online courses), que também incluirá cursos mistos com parte presencial (blended learning). É a France Universite Numerique (FUN, ou Universidade Francesa Digital), um projeto que utilizará a plataforma de recursos abertos da norte-americana edX, uma das MOOC pioneiras, adaptada para a língua francesa. O objetivo é ter polos de apoio presencial em todos os locais da França.

A criação da FUN pretende buscar integração com todas as demais universidades francesas para o oferecimento de cursos abertos online, e já conta com mais de cem instituições de ensino superior do país que pretendem divulgar seus cursos ali. Os primeiros vinte cursos da FUN serão abertos para inscrições no final de outubro e começarão a funcionar em janeiro do ano que vem. Por enquanto apenas nove instituições disponibilizaram seus cursos, nas áreas de meio-ambiente, Direito, gestão, TI, saúde, ciências e ciências humanas.

"Esta é a primeira vez que um ministério nacional de educação adota o ensino online" afirmou Anant Agarwal, presidente da edX, que acredita que a adoção pela plataforma de sua instituição é um teste "para o poder da educação online e para o potencial da plataforma aberta da edX".

The Academic Cooperation Association (ACA)  starts the new OpenSurvey study – an initiative funded by the European Commission’s Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) in Seville. The seven-month project is being jointly carried out by IPTS and ACA together with Prof. Marek Fuchs and Dr. Rita Morais.

The study is based on a five country online survey, which is to map the provision of Open Education (OE) in individual higher education institutions and also look into institutional strategies/policies, perceptions, practices, motivations, challenges and solutions in the area of OE. The main question driving the study is how to higher education institutions use ICTs to widen access to education and learning, i.e. to open up? The countries that will be surveyed are France, Germany, Poland, Spain and the UK.

El acceso abierto alcanza el llamado «punto sin retorno» | Comisión Europea

El acceso abierto alcanza el llamado «punto sin retorno» | Comisión Europea | Open Education | Scoop.it

El estudio indica que cerca del 50 % de los trabajos científicos publicados en 2011 son ahora accesibles gratuitamente. Ese porcentaje representa alrededor del doble del nivel estimado en estudios anteriores, lo que se explica por el uso de una mejor metodología y de una definición más amplia del «acceso abierto».

 

El 40 % de los artículos científicos revisados por pares y publicados en todo el mundo entre 2004 y 2011 se encuentra hoy disponible en línea en régimen de acceso abierto.

 

Son varios los países y distintas las disciplinas donde el número de artículos a los que puede accederse hoy gratuitamente supera el 50 %. El estudio se centra en la UE y en algunos países vecinos, así como en Brasil, Canadá, Japón y Estados Unidos de América.
