The 2nd World Open Educational Resources (OER) Congress is scheduled to be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, on 18–20 September 2017, co-organized by UNESCO and the Government of Slovenia (http://www.oercongress.org).
As the Congress will be able to host only around 600 delegates, representatives of Government, NGOs, educators, experts, academia and industry, we feel that there is a need to create equal opportunities for those who cannot join us in Ljubljana and empower the OER community and every Member State citizen around the world to be part of the Congress.
For this purpose, the Government of Slovenia will engage with its multimedia stakeholders VideoLectures.Net, MiTeam and Ministry of Education and other press partners to produce a virtual experience of the event via the Virtual OER Congress (http://www.oercongress.org/vi
All involved, remote and room participants, speakers and exhibitors will be able to access online materials, share content, information on satellite events, sessions, documents and their key areas of interest in their profiles.
The platform will be available until the end of 2017 and all registered participants will be able to share experiences, documents, discussions after the congress.
