CO-LAB Open Educational Resources

The CO-LAB project developed online training for practitioners offered through the European Schoolnet Academy and resources to support educators to design collaborative learning activities.


This rich set of resources (videos, scenarios etc.) is released as OER (Open Educational Resources), through the online catalogue LRE (Learning Resources Exchange) and made available to any institution or single user who wish to develop a custom training activity on the topic, also for peer or self-learning processes.

The scope and aim of the guidelines is to briefly introduce how the training activities were designed, with some general suggestions and reflection points, and how to find and use Open Educational Resources to build new courses, also beyond the reuse of the CO-LAB resources set and this specific topic.


Part 1 of focuses on the design of the training activities, outlining the key aspects of each training model originating from the CO-LAB experience (MOOC, short online course, introductory workshop). It provides some insight on how these models were developed and some tips on how to reuse the models or adapt them to your own needs.

Part 2 provides an overview on Open Educational Resources, their definition and the licenses, and some tips on how to find, reuse and share again when building your own courses or educational material upon existing resources.
