This webinar was the final step in disseminating the resuls from the in-depth investigation and analysis of Open Educational Resources (OER) in the target languages of the LangOER consortium. At the same time, it was an opportunity to make a presentation and networking with two experts within OER and language learning. The webinar offered an opportunity to display the challenges and ways forward for reaching out to anyone interested in the area of OER and language learning, with a specific interest in how to reach out to small languages.

There were three short speeches in the webinar. The first speaker was Sylvi Vigmo from University of Gothenburg in Sweden who highlighted the role of co-design and the importance of involving learners in the OER community when developing OER for less used languages. The next speaker Kate Borthwick from University of Southampton in the UK brought up the work with some inspiring projects with OER where teachers from less used languages have gathered to share ideas, creating a sense of community for the teachers. The final speaker, Anna Comas-Quinn at the Open University in the UK, raised translation as a way forward to reach out to small languages, making ideas accessible to others. During the speeches, the audience could interact with the speakers through the chat-channel moderated by the chair person Alastair Creelman from EFQUEL. This event attracted a large audience.


LangOER (2014 – 2016) is a European network focused on enhancing the linguistic and cultural components of OER (open educational resources) by offering OER in less used languages and by enhancing sustainability through OER reuse.
