  • Open Education Week is coming up soon. We have distributed press releases and sent notifications as widely as possible. We need your help to make sure the word gets out. Some ideas follow.
  • Basis of educationTenant of scholarshipInformation is not a scarce resourceSharing allows collaboration, innovation, advancementCost of not sharing – opportunity cost, etc – too high
  • Free = no costOpen = no cost and openly licensed, at least including the right to modify
  • Open license is key.Free as in free beer and free as in freedom
  • Not the tools of revolution, but ways to support, extend, create,
  • Another interesting activity being undertaken in Indonesia is the use of OER in formal educational program. The University of Bandun wanted to develop programs in water management. As you know, developing new courses and programs requires a significant financial and time commitment. Rather than investing in faculty developing theoretical lectures, they decided to use these lectures freely and openly offered by Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, and focus their development efforts on contextualizing theoretical and practical approaches in Indonesian environments and society.
  • Students benefit from this approach by having more hands on opportunities to explore the application of theory and approach in their local situations. Faculty become engaged in producing locally relevant activities and content, which is then put back as OER so that the rest of the world can benefit from their experience and begin to understand how theoretical concepts can be interpreted and operationalized in different contexts around the world.
  • Free = no costOpen = no cost and openly licensed, at least including the right to modify

    22. 22. Free no cost Open No cost + permission to change By Adam Bartlett http://www.flickr.com/photos/atbartlett/2432704579/ By Sean MacEntee http://www.flickr.com/photos/smemon/4518528819/ Going back to the idea of Free and Open: A look at MOOCs
    23. 23. MOOCs MOOCs offer fully online courses to anyone without cost to the learner. These courses are generally large scale, up to thousands of students. They offer interactivity through frequent, built in assessments and sometimes peer discussion and guidance from teaching assistants. Users tend to be already highly educated (surveys indicate +/- 70% already have at least one post-secondary degree) Data gathered from users allow interesting research into online learning habits and preferences. Content is almost always fully copyrighted.
    24. 24. Most MOOCs offer free access, but do not grant permission to modify, translate, broadcast or re-distribute; they are free, but not open.
    25. 25. Example, Coursera terms of service You may access the course for personal use only, you may not modify or reuse without permission. Anything you contribute to the course can be used, modified, distributed by Coursera without notification or further permission from you. This may be fine if what you want is to follow a free course. However, if you want to make any modification, use it in a classroom, show content to a group, etc. you need to get permission as you would with any fully copyrighted work.
