The University Computing Centre University of Zagreb SRCE joined the international Open education week 2016, global initiative with a purpose to highlight how open education can help people meet their goals in education, whether that’s developing skills and knowledge for work, supporting formal studies, learning something new for personal interest, or looking for additional teaching resources. This year the Open education week was held from March 7th-11th, 2016. SRCE encourages open access and the usage of open educational resources (OER) for a number of years and actively work on raising awareness about it and its promotion in Croatia.
