Open Educational Practice (OEP) in the course ‘Students’ readiness’

Raimund Hudak talks about Open Educational Practice (OEP) in the course ‘Students’ readiness’ showing the idea to use test and forum for OEP activity.

The main idea was to use fun gaming test and integrated it into the course as a test tool. Students had to test their memory with an already existing OER . Once the students completed the test they had to discuss the tool and give their comment in prepared discussion forum of Unit 2. Raimund shows how the test looks like and what students can do in it.
