The Open University of Sri Lanka is offering the first Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) on Open Educational Resources (OER) and Open Educational Practices (OEP), available for practitioners/professionals from any field of study.
Registration is now open, until 19 October, 2018, at http://www.ou.ac.lk/apps/mooc/
Open and Distance Education in Australia, Europe and the Americas is now available as a free eBook download through Springer.
Experiences in Self-Determined Learning is now available as a free PDF file through the Center of Open Education Research (COER).
On Thursday, 19th July 2018, the University of South Africa's Vice President Prof. Gugu Moche signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the University of Oldenburg, to enable COER to offer professional development to the staff of Unisa. This certificate program will form a part of the new Master of Management of Technology Enhanced Learning (MTEL) offered through COER.
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of COER member, valued colleague and treasured friend, Professor Colin Latchem. He was a preeminent Australian researcher, writer, consultant and teacher within the field of open and distance learning, and we had been eagerly looking forward to his keynote address at the Inaugural COER Symposium on October 1st this year. Prof. Dr. Som Naidu will present the address at the Symposium in honour of Colin's memory.
Rest in Peace.

The aim of the special issue is to foster scientific debate among educationists, data and learning scientists, statisticians, computer scientists, teachers, practitioners and others to understand how learning analytics can lead to an understanding of learning and teaching process while (re)invigorating the quality of online and distance education. In this special issue, we invite state-of-art research studies that show how new theoretical models and innovative approaches have been employed to understand learning and teaching through the use of large-scale or granular datasets. Given the potential of learning analytics to provide new insights into contemporary education challenges, there are numerous topics that may be addressed such as: Improvements in understanding the learners, their learning process and outcomes, and the learning environment or assessment, feedback and sense-making of data visualisations. The specific context for these studies should centre on open, flexible and distance learning.
