Abstract
Information and Communication technologies (ICT) have the potential - when used effectively - to provide real added value to learning and to help us achieve the political goals of lifelong learning for all. However, for the full potential to be realised we need (inter alia) access to relevant, contextualised, high quality content.
A significant debate is now taking place within the educational community on access rights and protection/freedom for educational content. Some advocate a proprietary approach; others an open one. At the same time, there is a greater understanding emerging of the changing role of content in ITC supported learning and of the need to do things differently.
This paper reflects on the outcomes of a recent e-learning conference and of a workshop held last year on digital education content, and shows how a balaced approach to European policy is being pursued.
