emergence of different “quality cultures”. The range of open, flexible, distance and eLearning settings in the meantime is becoming broader and it is essential to bring about dialogue between experts, academia, the ICT industry and the publishing sector as well as the education and training authorities across
The 12th Annual Conference of EDEN aims to raise awareness and disseminate knowledge, addressing this strategic area in the learning agenda in Europe.
