Open Discovery Space (ODS) is the largest e-Learning project which ever has been funded by the European Commission with a budget of 15.3 Mio € and involving 51 partners from 20 European countries. It focuses on the school sector and aims to design and develop innovative learning methodologies and instruments by promoting and realizing Open Education, opening up content by centralizing the access to European learning content repositories, and extending their functionalities through an own toolset. The workshop participants (face-to-face and virtual participants as well) will be encouraged in an action research setting to 1) exchange their experiences about their use of Open Educational Resources (OER), to 2) discuss barriers against the use of OERs and 3) jointly develop problem solutions.
