Re-using Open Educational Resources Workshop

Open educational resources by their very nature are materials that have been designed to be re-usable. So the EVOLUTION project is running a workshop that will provide participants with an introduction to the concepts of Re-usable Learning Objects (RLOs). It will also explore Generative Learning Objects (GLOs) developed by the RLO CETL project and then participants will be provided with a hands on session that will enable them to develop learning objects using the GLO Maker 2.0 tool.
