The International Conference on Web & Open Access to Learning (ICWOAL’2014) focuses on an important concept in the right to education that is access. Open access to learning and education encourages a variety of pedagogical and technological approaches to accomplish the dissemination of knowledge, skills and competencies across the diversity of social and cultural backgrounds. UNESCO in 2002 adopted the term Open Educational Resources (OER) to refer to the “open provision of educational resources enabled by Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)”. Though, much progress has been made in the field of OER and online learning, such as open access journals, learning objects, and open source software, many challenges are still facing the international research community and decision makers to address the global education gap. ICWOAL’2014 provides forum for discussion between researchers, practitioners, industry, students, and education policy makers interested in new developments in Web learning technologies, eLearning solutions, smart learning systems, social media & learning, and policies and regulations for open access to learning and education.
The International Conference on Web & Open Access to Learning (ICWOAL’2014) is organized by the Canadian University of Dubai in partnership with many prestigious International Institutions. ICWOAL’2014 will be held from 25th to 27th of November, 2014 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai is a city where the sophistication of the 21st century walks hand in hand with the simplicity of a bygone era; a cosmopolitan society with an international lifestyle combining the comfort and convenience of the Western world with the unique charm and hospitality of Arabia.
