Description: 

As COVID-19 continues spreading in the whole world, how to keep learning in disruption has become a challenge to the global education community. There is therefore a huge need to design and deliver effective support services of online learning oriented for both teachers and students. There are several critical challenges that must be considered in the development and implementation of e-learning environments. These include encouraging open lifelong learning, valuing both informal and formal learning, addressing the open and social dimensions of learning, and recognizing the different contexts in which learning takes place. In particular, in MOOC environments, it is also crucial to investigate methodologies and tools to design Learning resources that can be open and accessible online for an important number of learners. Open learning is helping democratize education, by making it more affordable, accessible, and attainable to learners, no matter their location or income level. 

In this workshop, we propose scenarios for design and delivery of open  online  learning in particular in a context of educational disruption and describe Instructional design approach and Tools for developing learning resources for  MOOCs.
