This course taught by KU Leuven University describes how professionals of the Europeana Space network creatively reuse digital cultural content. It is hosted by edX, an online education platform.

The educational idea behind the E-Space online course is to lower barriers to the access and reuse of cultural heritage content on Europeana and similar sources. The mission of this course is to share the creative ways with which people use and re-use Europeana and digital cultural content, to demonstrate the essential concept that cultural content is not just to contemplate, but to live and engage with.

This online course is based on the Europeana Space project, which has received funding from the European Union's ICT Policy Support Programme as part of the Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme, under GA n° 621037 and aims to further the creative reuse of Europeana content.

Some of the learning outcomes of the course are:

  • Learning to access and use repositories
  • Reusing digital cultural heritage
  • Studying aspects of Photomediations: An Open Book as a case study.
  • Understanding Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in the context of reuse of digital cultural heritage
