Abstract: Elevator pitch about Seamless learning for the Board of the Open University of the Netherlands. People increasingly learn in different (physical and social) settings with less effort than 50 years ago, as both technological as well as physical infrastructures allow them to do so. Learners easily move from one ‘place’ to another and create their own learning ‘places’, e.g. by using mobile devices and cloud-technology. Learners’ mobility and control on what, when, where (Chan et al., 2006) and how they want to learn is still increasing every day, allowing them to choose from a wide variety of formal (e.g. schools, universities) as well as non-formal (e.g. museums, ‘on the job’, MOOC’s) learning experiences. Seamless Learning (Wong, Milrad, & Specht, 2015) looks at the ‘gaps’ that currently exist between these varied learning settings and how learning across these different settings can be fostered by making transitions as smooth as possible (Looi et al., 2010) with innovative technology and pedagogy, in order to make learning more meaningful, transferable, effective, continuous and fun for learners.
