Abstract: Open Educational Resources is an OUNL-project that aims at offering free mini-courses on the level of higher education through internet. The project started in 2006 with the support of the Dutch Ministry of education and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. Now in 2008 about 25 mini-courses (25 study hours) are available and the number is increasing. One of these Opener courses is the Metabola Game. The Metabola Game was a board game developed by the faculty of Natural Sciences of OUNL to help students to understand the workings of a cell. It is a playful tool to learn close interrelations between the many synthesis and breakdown reactions in a cell. The board game version is being used in OUNL education since 1985
