English abstract

This paper outlines the experience developed in the UNED (Spanish National University of Distance Education) to extend the use of Open Educational Resources for business and management education. UNED joined the European research project OpenScout --which offers value-added tools and services for learners, educators and technology providers- and participated in the design, creation, analysis and evaluation of a model of informal learning. OpenScout draws from a federated repository of educational resources, using and re-using the existing materials and generating new ones, in a creative, collaborative, multilingual international initiative. The cultural adaptation process has been analyzed in the Spanish context. The main strengths of OpenScout, linked to the re-use of open contents in the educational process, are described. In addition, we discuss the project’s capacity for integration into larger virtual communities, seeking synergies from combined use with the most popular social networks.

Spanish abstract

Se expone la experiencia llevada a cabo en la UNED (Universidad Nacional de Educación a Distancia) para extender la utilización de recursos educativos en abierto en el aprendizaje y el desarrollo de competencias profesionales. Con este fin se integró en el proyecto de investigación europeo OpenScout, participando en el diseño, creación, análisis y evaluación de un modelo de aprendizaje informal a partir de un repositorio federado de recursos educativos, sobre el que se han utilizado y reutilizado los materiales existentes y se han generado nuevos objetos en un entorno creativo, colaborativo, de ámbito internacional y multilingüe. El proceso de adaptación de recursos se ha analizado en el contexto cultural español. Se muestran las fortalezas de la plataforma OpenScout vinculadas a la re-utilización de contenidos en abierto dentro del proceso educativo y la capacidad de integración en comunidades virtuales más amplias, buscando las sinergias derivadas del uso combinado con las redes sociales más conocidas.
