An ENOEL Toolkit: Open Education Benefits | Zenodo

Welcome to the ENOEL Open Education Benefits Toolkit! It is a set of tools (slides, leaflets, and Twitter cards) prepared by The European Network of Open Education Librarians (ENOEL). The toolkit aims to help raise awareness of the importance of Open Education and it points out benefits for students, teachers, institutions, and society.

All templates are under a CC BY licence, enabling you to use and adapt them to your specific needs. Depending on your circumstances, you may choose to use Twitter cards in your campaign, or add one of the slides in your presentation, or even print out one or more leaflets and hang them on a wall of your local library. 

We invite you to pick and choose, adapt and reuse! Help us raise awareness about the benefits of Open Education!

How to use it?

The set contains three types of tools:

1. OE Benefits – ENOEL slides 

2. OE Benefits – ENOEL leaflets 

3. OE Benefits – ENOEL Twitter cards

Look at the second slide in each deck for a detailed description of how the files are organized and how they might be used. We’d love to hear how you have reused them: oer@sparceurope.org
