René Pickhardt and Steffen Staab from Institute WeST won first prize at the fOERder award 2016, offered by the Transfer Agent for Open Educational Resources.
The audience of the OER experts’ panel in Berlin was impressed by the „MOOC Extension for Wikiversity“ from René Pickhardt and Steffen Staab. The extension expands the didactical capabilities of the Wikiversity platform. By this, the software becomes an even better choice for hosting publicly accessible online courses, such as the „Introduction to Web Science“ offered by WeST.
The OER award is the first large competition about Open Educational Resources in german-speaking countries. It increases visibility and appreciation of contributors and programmes and promotes new ideas in the field of Open Educational Resources.
