For the fourth consecutive year, the Open Education Special Interest Group and SURFnet have prepared a trend report outlining the latest dynamic developments in the area of open content, open education and – as of this year – online (but not necessarily open) education. How is open education impacting campus education? Which new target groups are finding themselves drawn to open and online education, what are their specific needs, and how is the higher education sector responding to these demands? Effective online education requires valid online testing procedures. What are the available options in this regard? Is there demand for a nationwide infrastructure in support of open and online education, and – if so – what form should this take? How can learning analytics be applied in online education, and what are the relevant challenges in this regard? What are the key points on the international open education research agenda? What are the available platforms for online education? This trend report features a broad overview of perspectives from various experts, in the form of articles and brief intermezzos.
