This paper aims to discuss important concepts related to online education which bring a new educational paradigm: open learning through free learning materials and technologies. In this context, we present the OpenLearn Project – virtual environment based on the platform Moodle with educational resources developed by the Open University. The purpose of the OpenLean project is widening participation through digital inclusion and free access to higher education learning. The OpenLearn offers not only course contents, but also new technologies integrated for collective construction of knowledge such as: the software tool Compendium and the web application for video conference Flashmeeting. In the end, we highlight some important actions to facilitate interactivity and co-authorship for learning communities.
