To Whome it may concerne,
I am currently envolved in a reserach for the Jean-Monnet ans Erasmus + funded projekt “EQUALITY TRAINING NETWORK: EU CONTRIBUTIONS TO GENDER MAINSTREAMING AND CITIZENSHIP” at the Freie Universität Berlin. Would it be possible for you to gant me access to your MOOc BOOK or is this tool for internal use only? We are currently developing a manual for HEI-docents on OER, including MOOCs, and Genderequaity. Your results on Best Practice and Guidlines might be highly relevant and interesing for your reserach.
With kind regads from Berlin,
