EADTU, the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities, has set up a new Europe-wide MOOCs initiative called OpenupEd. At the start around 40 courses, covering a wide variety of subjects, are available, in 12 different languages. The 11 launch partners – mostly open universities – are based in France, Italy, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and the UK, and outside the EU in Russia, Turkey and Israel.

Courses offered through OpenupEd by the Netherlands OU include one on eLearning and one on Cultural Heritage.
