SLOOP (Sharing Learning Objects in an Open Perspective) is an eLearning and open content project started in 2005 from a European project co-funded within the Leonardo da Vinci programme. SLOOP is a community of practice of teachers who share Open Learning Object (OER). The original idea was to apply the free software philosophy to the production of pedagogical materials for e-learning.

Another two European Projects have followed: Tenegen & Sloop2desc.

History[edit]

A Learning Object (LO) is, by definition, a reusable chunk of learning content: the reusability is the main motivation in favour of LOs. But if an LO is covered by copyright, it can be reused from the technical point of view, but legally it is only reusable by the owner. The SLOOP Project introduced the idea of free or open Learning Object: an LO with a licence that allows the material to be used freely, to be changed and to be distributed.

The SLOOP community includes teachers from many countries who share LOs. The SLOOP Project developed free LOMS, a free LO management system.

The SLOOP Project was funded with support from the European Commission under the European Commission "Leonardo da Vinci programme" – with partners in Italy, Ireland, Romania, Slovenia and Spain.[1]

Successors[edit]

TENEGEN Project[edit]

PROMPT, a Hungarian organisation, presented in the framework of the Lifelong Learning Programme a transfer of innovation project based on the Netis project and SLOOP project results. It was approved and developed between October 2008 and September 2010. The project is called TENEGEN, named for Connect the TEachers – to reach and teach the NET GENeration.

Sloop2desc Project[edit]

Another SLOOP project partner, ITD-CNR, presented within the Lifelong Learning Programme a new transfer of innovation project, started in October 2009. Sloop2desc means Sharing Learning Objects in an Open Perspective TO develop european skills and competences. Sloop2desc focused on new educational models based on competences and learning outcomes. Specifically, the project referred to the EQF (European Qualification Framework), that was adopted by the EU Parliament and Council in April 2008, establishing general criteria for comparing qualification systems developed and/or adopted in the EU countries.
