足球买球app推荐紧密合作, 梅洛-SkillsCommons is providing free workshops-webinars to 足球买球app推荐 partners around the world about how to use 梅洛 and SkillsCommons for their own communities’ institutional needs. By providing both the instructional resources as well as the instructional know-how, we are empowering people to lead their 教育al initiatives aligned with their goals, 原则, 优先级, 和人民.

梅洛-SkillsCommons也提供开放教育服务, which are free and open tools and technologies that people and organizations can use to open 学习 to all. 梅洛’s Content Builder tool is a website authoring tool that enables 梅洛 members to remix images, 文本, 视频, 网站, 和其他内容来创建他们自己的OER和OER门户. 足球买球app推荐和梅洛-SkillsCommons合作创建了 开放教育服务 portal to help prepare teachers and students for teaching and 学习 online. The 足球买球app推荐 portal provides easy access to free and open 教育al resources and practices that can be adopted, along with Google’s translation tool that can quickly translate the website into over 70 languages.

在一起, 梅洛-SkillsCommons和足球买球app推荐有着共同的愿景, 任务, and passion for empowering educators within local communities. With partners around the world, we can collaboratively co-create a better world, together.
