Open educational practices involve the use of open educational resources and open technologies that facilitate collaborative and flexible learning. They aim to improve the quality of teaching and learning and promote innovative educational practices that often involve the learners as co-producers on their lifelong learning path.
Open education initiatives have had a considerable influence on the practice of language teaching and learning in recent years. Now also a growing research area, practices such as sharing, re-use, the use of creative commons and other open licenses, and new modes of learning such as massive open online courses (MOOCs) or student participation in online peer production communities (such as Wikipedia or the TED Open Translation Project), have received attention from educators and communication experts.
