Leader and teacher of the course ‘Digital Pedagogy’ Judit Vidékiné Reményi shares opinion about course development and open educational practice (OEP) in this course.
OEP activities was based on a relevant case study, comparison of mainstream and digital learning environments. Student blog was used as an ICT tool to implement OEP.
As readiness for collaboration seems to depend on personality traits and the educational culture of the system, collaboration should have been more emphatic, encouraged. Collaboration is only a useful tool, when a batch of learners do the course parallel. Otherwise, its integration into an online course is rather useless.
It also essential to make the learners understand, that as online learners they should forget about the competitive characteristic of education. It needs a total change of approach. This takes much time and even more practice.
