    • Open Source Content "I see this open-source book not as something which is "free and worth every penny", but rather, as a high quality alternative to the business as usual of the textbook industry and I hope that you agree." - Jeff Zeager Open textbook for Coursera Algebra course. Stitz, Carl and Zeager, Jeff. (2011). College Algebra (Version = 3). Open Textbook. http://stitz- zeager.com/Precalculus/Stitz_Zeager_Open_Source_Precalculus_files/SZCA07152011.pdf

    • Embedded Librarians? I imagine librarians joining MOOCs and not just serving a traditional role (let me guide you to some info) but genuinely becoming a part of the course (let’s build and learn together.) This is a chance for us to present ourselves as public thinkers, public learners, public instructors, and public knowledge makers. This is an opportunity to fully participate in the total learning process—or at least a greater share of it. I want students, faculty, and others seeing librarians as partners, collaborators, experts, and fellow learners. Not just the keepers of the proxy.
