Opening Up ICT Education: Open Source, Open Textbooks, Open Courses, and Open Access Journals
The open source pioneers launched the “open” movement in the 1990s with the promotion of freely reusable software and community development. Since that time open textbooks, open courses, and open-access journals have joined the disruptive “open” movement. IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization, recently announced that all its peer-reviewed journals will offer open-access publishing. Come and find out about the repositories for open textbooks, open courses, and journals that you can freely reuse in your ICT classroom to lower costs and enhance your teaching.
This session will help attendees to understand the current open education movement in the context of the early open source initiative and how that eventually lead to the open course movement, open textbooks, and open access journal publishing.
The presenter will share the IEEE and ACM policy studies of transformig their scholarly journal business from an “all rights reserved” to “open access option” publishing model. In addition, recent California state higher education policy and legislation that has been supportive of open educational practices to lower costs for students will be discussed.
Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to explore national and international repositories for open courses, open textbooks, and open access journals that can be freely re-used in community college ICT classrooms.
