The first official review of the X5GON project at the European Commission in Brussels was successful. The project delivering an Artificial Intelligence platform for Open Educational Resources was pronounced as highly innovative and its platform one with great potential. X5GON can help us make a case for the role of OER in achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4.
We shared the idea of opening the platform and its APIs to the OER community and start-ups, and invite them to use our data and tools. This pleased the reviewers who suggested we should think about it as “…like you’re digging a tunnel into a mountain, not knowing what’s behind it – until you let them come to you. It’s a case of letting the community open your eyes to the possibilities.” Congrats to our partners!
