The commitment builds on previous action plans to map the situationon open education in Slovakia and take steps to preparelegislative conditions, construction of technical infrastructure and preparation of conditions for creationand the use of open educational resources. Important steps towards this goalthe commitments defined in the OGP Action Plan 2015 and OGP Action Plan 2017 - 2019 related tointroducing the use of open licenses 21 for available educational resources procured from publicresources which should subsequently be available to the public without restrictions. Following these steps, in 2018 the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and SportSR (hereinafter referred to as “MŠVVaŠ SR”) created on-line portal Central repository of digitalContent (CÚDEO), which aims to bring together digital educational content. Its launching intooperation is expected in the near future. To develop the theme of open educational resourcesand the effective use of the CUDO portal is important to address the key challenges of removing barriersto prevent the spread of newly created traditional educational resources, in particular textbooks, supportcreating new open educational resources in predominantly digital formats and educationeducators to use and create new open educational resources.

The aim of the commitment is to make effective use of the emerging portal of educational resources by preparing legislationconditions that would guarantee that newly created educational resources arising from public sources,e.g. textbooks will be created with an open license, so it will be possible to share them on the CÚDEO portal. 23CUDEO should not be limited to formal education materials. The portal is also intended fornon-formal learning materials that can be used not only outside formal educationtraining in youth work, but some of its elements can be effectively used in the environmentpre-primary, primary and secondary education. Such focused content could in addition to alreadyThe above mentioned people also use and share with youth workers, volunteers, lecturers at work withyouth and other professionals working with this target group. Another objective of the commitment is to prepareadequate conditions for financing the creation of new educational resources with an open license,which, once approved, will be integrated into the Learning Resources Portal. There are several openings in this topicdiverse possibilities, including calls from EU funds, grant scheme of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Slovak Republic;incubators and laboratories, hackathons ... USS ROS organized in this respect in 2018Meeting with relevant actors from the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports, directly managed by the Ministry of Education,publishers and representatives of civil society. An essential part of the commitment istraining teachers to use the portal and create educational resources.

Educational training will contribute to effective learningthe use of the CÚDEO portal and encourage the emergence of new educational resources. Remove currentbarriers by legislation will enable further filling of the portal with newly created educational resources,especially digital versions of textbooks or outputs from publicly funded projectsresources.Thanks to a functional and well-filled portal, pupils, students, educators and the public will gain accessaccess to publicly funded educational resources, contributing to the increasetransparency in the management of public resources. Creating adequate conditions for creationnew open educational resources will also open up new opportunities for civil society,educators or academics to engage in the creation of educational resources, thereby strengthening civicparticipation in the creation of educational resources.
