Norwegian Digital Learning Arena wins the Boldic Award 2014


Norwegian Digital Learning Arena (NDLA) has won the Boldic Award 2014 for delivering open and free digital learning resources of high quality for all.

The award showcases best practises and successful experiences within the Nordic/Baltic area.

 Øivind Høines, head of NDLA, said that NDLA were thrilled and honoured to receive the award.The Boldic Award Jury 2014 said, “NDLA combines a wide coverage of free digital learning resources online and wide context cooperation between teachers and producers. This is an innovative project of open and distance learning. The resources travel well on computers, tablets, social webs and they support mobile technologies. By opening up for user-generated content, NDLA has been able to start the transition from a traditional single-mode of content delivery to a dual-mode of delivery and interaction. The NDLA strategy can be scalable over the whole Nordic and Baltic region. This is a unique way to work together to promote online learning and ICT. NDLA is a worthy winner of the Boldic Award 2014.”

“The teachers and partners of NDLA have up until now received far too little international acclaim. The Boldic Award 2014 is an award that warms our hearts and opens up our international perspective. We feel that this acknowledgement truly encourages us, and we now hope to become a part of an international network of similar initiatives. NDLA has shown the potential for OER on a national level. Think about what we can achieve if we work together,” said Mr Høines.

Congratulation to NDLA on winning the Boldic Award 2014!
