JISC CETIS Study Why do institutions adopt OER ?
Tax contributions can be better invested when sharing resources
Quality improvement and development cost
Public relations at the institutions can use OER projects to attract new students
Need to look at new models for sustainability (experience and competition)
Free sharing increase development speed, innovation, reuse and help institutions to keep track of their materials and the way they are used
+ What is produced with public money should be public
There is data on OER projects in the developed world... but
What is happening locally with Open Licensing in higher educational OER projects?
How are educational institutions receiving the initiative?
How is it that the Open Licensing initiative relates to educational resources?
Are there local examples of open educational resources?
How do local experiences use Creative Commons in the educational frame, especially OER projects?
10 to 18 years More than half connect via schools More than half had a home computer 80% had access to cell phones 11% create content Central Area
What makes resources OPEN? The ability to: • Access • Share — Copy, Distribute, Display • Adapt — Perform, Translate • Derive — Remix The openness of a resource increases with the permissions given. More permissions = More open.
A look at Latin American initiatives points to interesting projects that meet the “open” philosophy that gives basis to the OER- OCW- movement, while there are important technical implementations towards that goal, but paradoxically they do not seem to incorporate the legal framework in order to adopt and sustain the open concept, or they do it without assesing the legal compromise
1. Each country develops it`s site (total autonomy according to their educational project and national interest, partners support each other)
2. There is an open statement: “los contenidos desarrollados por los portales miembros son de libre circulación en la Red.” However this is mainly a philosophical statement that not all barriers are leveraged
En este proyecto participaron nueve universidades en cuatro regiones del país, publicando mas (sic) de 1700 objetos de aprendizaje e informativos. Invitamos a toda la comunidad académica a que participe de esta iniciativa, consultando el banco, comentando y valorando los objetos que se encuentran publicados, los cuales son de libre acceso y descarga, respetando la licencia de uso de cada universidad ”
