NEXT WEBINAR: 7 December 2018 from 12:00-13:00 CET.

The objective is to discuss the findings of a white paper commissioned by the LRE-subcommittee earlier this year.  The white paper reviews the implications and opportunities of Machine-Learning and Artificial Intelligence for educational portals and OER repositories.

During the webinar, the paper's author, Dr. Chounta will present a synopsis followed by an opportunity for Q&A.  The final version of the paper will be made available by November 30th. We invite everyone to submit questions prior to the webinar (even if you are not able to attend the live session) so Dr. Chounta can take them into account.

A recording of the webinar will be available on the EdReNe website after the event.

SENnet - Provision of Learning Resources for Learners with Special Needs in European Schoolnet’s Learning Resource Exchange

The LRE now comprises a collection of 600 resources with content and accessibility features of particular benefit to learners with special needs, covering a wide range of ages, countries and languages. The project has adopted the approach of describing resources in terms of inclusion and functionality rather than of disability. See application profile below.

Who we are and what we do

EdReNe brings together members from webbased repositories of learning resources with content owners and other stakeholders within education.
We share, develop and document strategies, experiences and solutions on the organisation, structuring and functionality of repositories. The overall goal is to improve the provision of and access to learning resources.
