Post Job Summary


Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have recently come to the fore
through high profile providers such as Udacity, Coursera, edX and the
OU’s own FutureLearn. According to some commentators this new initiative
will radically change the higher education landscape through the
provision of high quality freely available educational materials. The
FORGE project is applying technologies related to rich interactive
eBooks, social networking learning platforms and Linked Data to turn
large scale Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE)
facilities into a learning resource. See

The weSPOT project aims at propagating a scientific inquiry approach for
science learning and teaching in combination with current curricula and
teaching practices. It lowers the threshold for linking everyday life
with science teaching in schools through technology. weSPOT supports the
meaningful contextualization of scientific concepts by relating them to
personal curiosity, experiences, and reasoning founded on a
theoretically sound and technology supported personal inquiry
approach. See
