Interoperable Content for Performance
in a Competency-driven Society
ICOPER is a Best Practice Network co-funded by the eContentplus programme of the European Community. The 30-months-project started in September 2008 and has the mission to collect and further develop best practices for higher education tackling issues like creating learning designs and teaching methods, authoring content for re-use, transferring knowledge in an outcome-oriented way and assessing it, or evaluating learning activities.
The 25 Partners from all over Europe are key and leading experts in digital educational development and technology enhanced learning (TEL). As an Open Network Philosophy is followed everyone can get involved, contribute, and benefit.
The three main objectives of the consortium are
- Analyse and facilitate the adoption of standards and specifications
- Make educational resources like content, learning outcomes, teaching methods and learning designs accessible via the Open ICOPER Content Space
- Validate standards and specifications and condense them into the ICOPER Reference Model (IRM).
