There is a brand new module that forms a framework for the whole course – Developing Competences. We decided that this is crucial for VET, so there is going to be some cool videos and mind-blowing activities that will help teachers and trainers to re-think competencies and skills.
Another novelty is greater focus on resources, as they seem to be the lacking element for VET sector. So there will be two modules on that: one dedicated to creating and publishing multimedia, the second on re-using and re-mixing the resources already availiable.
There are some new activities designed, some videos being shot and some infographics added to stay tuned – the open piloting of the open course will be launched in October 2013.
