What's it all about?

What is OB3?

OB3 – Beautiful Study for Lifelong Learning is a personal learning environment that focuses on the educational or learning activities of people rather than a course. It offers more autonomy than traditional learning management systems, and is particularly well suited for independent, lifelong, and self-directed styles of learning.

Who should come and why?

  • Anyone who is struggling to keep their personal or informal learning resources organised: notes, videos, photos, links to videos, podcasts, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter feeds, etc.
  • Those who would be interested in organising their personal learning resources by topics using media-rich documents and folders.
  • Any person who is interested in curating their personal learning resources in a way that is easy to find, review, and share with groups of people.

What will you be doing?

You will learn how to create and organise media-rich documents of your informal learning content. A media-rich document could have text, embedded videos, audio-recordings, links to web pages, podcasts, etc. Very quickly you will be able to create collections of media-rich documents on diverse topics such as gardening, yoga or spiritual teachings, favourite podcast topics, curated lists of YouTube videos, movies, books etc. You could also create directories, glossaries or collections, and share them with the groups you create: family, friends, co-workers, club members, community projects, etc.

Workshop structure

  1. An introduction to the concepts of lifelong learning, independent study, self-directed learning styles.
  2. Learn to create, organise, and share media-rich documents of your informal learning content. 
  3. A brief presentation of potential uses and applications as part of activities with family, friends, co-workers, club members or community projects.
