High School Open On-line Courses (HOOC): A Case Study from Italy
The first implementation of complete high
school, open on-line courses (HOOC) aiming to support the training and
basic scientific knowledge of young students from the Liceo Ginnasio Dante
Alighieri in Gorizia, Italy, is discussed.
In this paper we shall describe our implementation of HOOC in Italy within the OpenDante (ODP) project directed to high school students at the Liceo Classico Dante Alighieri in the town of Gorizia. The main goal is to give the opportunity to our students (and not only) to follow (i.e.,watch again at their own place and pace) on-line lessons of physics and mathematics held in the classroom – see website: www.OpenDante.it, which we believe it can be a good example to be followed by other schools world-wide. The ODP for HOOC uses the open source automated recording system openEyA available for download from www.openeya.org (Canessa et al., 2009b).
