Final steps towards global OER Recommendation

The OpeningupSlovenia think tank partners have been working on the UNESCO OER Recommendation for the past four years, and on May 28th the last version of the policy was accepted by UNESCO member states. Its final step for approval will take place at the UNESCO General Assembly in November, 2019. The final text of the document will be now coordinated and translated by UNESCO and they will publish it prior to the November meeting.

OpeningupSlovenia was presenting an upcoming report on the use of AI and OER, together with UNESCO’s Communication and Information Sector. This years UNESCO Mobile Learning Week 2019 (4-8 March) focused on Artificial Intelligence and sustainable development.

Building certificates and credentails in the blockchain

Together with our partners, Knowledge 4 All Foundation (K4A) and the Jozef Stefan Institute (JSI), 0xcert is building a blockchain-based system for issuing and management of academic credentials, leveraging blockchain qualities of traceability, security, and ease of authentication.

Also, by implementing the NFT (non-fungible token) technology, the uniqueness, metadata, and identity related to a certificate or micro-credential can be securely protected on a ledger while providing all involved parties with a simple, autonomous, and intuitive means of management.

All this is being developed within the MicroHE project which aims to provide the most comprehensive policy analysis yet conducted of the impact of modularisation, unbundling and micro-credentialing in European Higher Education.
