A free world-class education for anyone anywhere.
All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge.
Studiecoach is a free online resource for study advice or digital coach and was created by the Dutch Open University (http://www.ou.nl) which is specialised in higher education for adult students through supported distance learning. Studying in distance learning requires new and different study methods from the traditional classroom learning; in distance education there are fewer contact hours and there is more self-study which requires more self-discipline. Following the university's open public nature of providing resources, Studiecoach is freely available for students and non-OU students.
The Studiecoach website combines several media types and activities: video, tests, text, games, exercises, exam and training. The themes are: time management, anxiety, multiple choice examtraining, oral presentation, written presentation, mindmapping, meditation, finding scientific information on the Internet. All themes are visualised in the form of a mindmap and each topic is introduced by a short video and students can access further content and training programs or register directly at one of the training programs in the study center. In addition to Studiecoach, the Open University organises a series of workshops around these themes at different locations in the Netherlands, where students (and non-students) can meet each other and discuss the topics at hand.
A more detailed English description of the project is available in the Showcase on the MEDEA Awards website: http://www.medea-awards.com/showcase/studiecoach

Webcast Training Methodology
This Webcast Training Methodology has been prepared as part of the “How to Webcast – New Media Use in Efficient Learning Processes” project, co-financed by the Leonardo da Vinci - Lifelong Learning Programme.
This consortium implementing this project consists of:
• Management Observatory Foundation (FOZ)
• Adam Smith College (ASC)
• Czech Efficient Learning Node (CELN)
• Institute of Mobile Technologies for Education and Culture (IMOTEC)
How to webcast Trainer’s Manual
The Trainer’s manual was prepared in the frames of How to webcast – new media use in the efficient learning processes project, co-financed by the Lifelong Learning Programme – Leonardo da Vinci.
It provides preparation, promotion and valorisation of the on-line teaching methodology with the use of webcast software. These programmes allow one to conduct training with the use of presentations, video and sound (VOIP).
The Trainer’s manual exemplifies an extension of the practical knowledge contained in the methodology and it is designed to facilitate the work of trainers. The main aim is to support them in the organisational process of the webcast training and provide an efficiency in the use of all accessible tools.
