As the CoCOS project advances and the educators experiment with co-creation, the first results are starting to come in. In this newsletter we share results from the learners’ surveys. 

At the end of each pilot, the learners were invited to evaluate their experience. we have now collected a sample of n=174 with relative parity between male and female students. All questions use a Lickert scale of 1 (min) to 6 (max). 

The co-creation idea

These questions attempt to establish how clear the method and objectives were, and how appealing the ideas was at the start of the pilots.

Question A. Were the objective(s) and added value of the co-creation approach clear to you? Average value: 4.26/6
Question B. Was the idea of this new learning method appealing to you? Average value: 4.13/6

Learners’ participation and  evaluation

The next 3 questions relate to learner’s understanding of what’s expected from them, their satisfaction with own work and the reported levels of involvement and motivation.

Question C. Did you understand what was expected from you with regards to the preparation of the co-created materials? Average value: 4.33/6
Question E. Were you satisfied with the materials you developed and later presented? Average value: 4.29/6
Question F. Did you feel more involved and motivated using this approach? Average value: 4.14/6
Question D. Did you encounter difficulties, from a technical, practical and conceptual point of view, using certain co-creation tools? 3.35/6

Co-creation method appeal

The last two questions relate to whether the learners would want their teacher to use the method again and whether they now find co-creation more appealing than other traditional methods.

Question G. Would you like for the teacher to use this approach again? Average value: 4.24/6
Question H. Did you find it more appealing than other learning method? Average value: 4.09/6

Full results will be available when all pilots will have finished at the end of 2019.


CoCOS is a European Erasmus+ KA2 funded project that has as a main objective to apply the mindset, methods and tools gleaned for open source development to the co-creation of course content. In a number of diverse pilot courses we will test out and evaluate our experiences with open educational resources (OERs), open source platforms and freely available web tools explicitly designed to reduce course management during co-creation.


The consortium consists of six European partners:

  • Artevelde University College (project lead), Belgium
  • Ljudska Univerza Velenje, Slovenia
  • National Training Centre, Bulgaria
  • Jaitek Technology and Training, Spain
  • Foundation Knowledge Centre Pro Work, The Netherlands
  • Ghent University, Belgium
