OpenGame Promoting Open Education through Gamification – Transferability Toolkit


OpenGame project (Promoting Open Education through Gamification) aims to contribute to the uptake of Open Education Resources and Open Education Practices among educators in Higher Education in an innovative and motivating way, through the developing of a gamified and situated learning experience on Open Education. It is a project funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Commission. The main objectives of the project are:

1. Foster awareness of HE educators to adopt OEP in their daily teaching, by mainstreaming successful practices.
2. 2 Increase motivation of HE educators towards adopting OEP by providing an attractive and motivating environment.
3. 3 Develop capacity of HE educators to work with open approaches, through an engaging gamified learning experience

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

The OpenGame Transferability Toolkit aims to help teachers, stakeholders, and institutions interested in the field of Open Education to apply the outputs produced by the project. That includes the handbook of good practices, the course contents and the game experience, among other results. It is essentially a ‘User Manual’ that provides Guidelines, procedures, tools and practice examples to support the successful transferability and use of the OpenGame outputs within organizations and individuals. The toolkit can be browsed through its 11 video resources. All the sections have a video resource embedded to facilitate the user experience and accessibility. The game related videos are also translated to Spanish to enhance local impact.
