UCLA Public/Private patch for Moodle

  1. 1. A cost-effective, simple, and low-risk way to make bits of your Moodle course available as Open Educational Resources Alan Arnold, University of Canberra
  2. 2. The Openness 2.0 conversation <ul><li>All Australian universities are, or will soon be, grappling with Openness tensions </li></ul><ul><li>Government 2.0 agenda will encourage open licensed publicly-funded outputs - as do ARC, NHMRC </li></ul><ul><li>Are your teaching materials publicly-funded? </li></ul><ul><li>The University conversation usually ends up at “benefits versus risks & costs” </li></ul><ul><li>The major costs will be staff time & culture change </li></ul>
  3. 3. The Challenge & Opportunity <ul><li>You want to share your materials and learning activities with the world </li></ul><ul><li>You already have these in a live Moodle course, so you COULD just provide access to guests without a key BUT there are bits that you DON’T want to expose </li></ul><ul><li>You DON’T want to go through expensive & time-consuming re-publishing processes (eg MIT OCW) or maintain a separate public course </li></ul>
