    • And we can make
      all of our
      “digital stuff”
      available to
      all people…
      and most of it
      will get used...
      by someone.

    • So how do we prepare students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using
      technologies that haven’t been
      invented, to solve problems we
      don’t even know are problems yet?

    • (2) eLearning
      Why call it “eLearning?”
    • “Distance” is about geographic separation.
      “eLearning” is about leveraging the unique affordances of digital, networked technologies to support new ways of learning in new spaces.
      Online, Hybrid, Enhanced
      “eLearning”
    • Going to Web and Mobile
    • 20,583
    • Ongoing eLearning Growth
      Over 96,600 students learn online each year + 34,000 Hybrid
      Online FTE up more than 22%
      Hybrid FTE up more than 45%
      18% (and growing) of all state instruction is delivered via online or hybrid instruction.
      29
    • Ongoing Online Learning Growth
      45% of all CTC graduates earn 15 or more credits online or hybrid
      23 colleges offer 86 different degrees and certificates online
      16 colleges offer an AA degree online
      30
    • Why does this growth matter?
    • Educate More Citizens
      • HECB Master Plan
      • I. Raise educational attainment to create prosperity, opportunity
      • Policy Goal: Increase the total number of degrees and certificates…
      • By 2018, raise mid-level degrees and certificates to 36,200 annually, an increase of 9,400 degrees annually.
    • 2008-09 Online + Hybrid LearningGas / Trips / CO2 Savings
      2.2M round trips avoided
      = reduced traffic congestion

    • (3) Open Educational Resources
    • Why is “Open” Important?
      When we cooperate and share, we all win
      Faculty have new choices when building learning spaces.
      …the more eyes on a problem, the greater chance for a solution.
      Affordability: students can’t afford textbooks
      Self-interest: good things happen when I share
      It’s a social justice issue: everyone should have the right to access digital knowledge.
    • Definition of OER
      Digitized materials, offered freely and openly for educators, students, to use and re-use for teaching, learning and research.
    • (a few) Open Content Repositories
      OpenLearn (UK) - DEMO
      OCW – MIT (MIT HS)
      China Open Resources for Education has translated 109 MIT OCW courses into Simplified Chinese.
      Rice Connexions

      Upload one copy, and everyone uses it simultaneously
      Making copies, storage, distribution of digital stuff = “Free”

    • Comparison of Statistics Textbooks
    • Why do we Need Open Textbooks?
      2005 GAO report: College textbook prices have risen at twice the rate of annual inflation over the last two decades
      http://www.gao.gov/new.items/d05806.pdf
    • Why do we Need Open Textbooks?
      The College Board reported that for the 2007 through 2008 academic years each student spent an estimated $805 to $1,229 on college books and supplies…
      http://www.collegeboard.com/prod_downloads/about/news_info/trends/trends_pricing_07.pdf

    • Why so urgent?
      Consider One High Enrollment Course:
      English Composition I
      42,600+ enrollments / year
      X $100 textbook
      = $4.2Million + (cost to students)
      What if we looked at 100, 200, 300 high enrollment courses?
      http://rtnl.files.wordpress.com/2007/01/thinker21.jpg
    • Hey Higher Education!
      We must get rid of our “not invented here” attitude regarding others’ content
      move to: "proudly borrowed from there"
      Content is not a strategic advantage
      Nor can we (or our students) afford it
    • What Happens if weDon’t Change?
      Harder to catch-up …
      Or even understand.
      Google, Amazon, Apple, Open Source,
      Open Content, Open Textbooks…
      Functional Possibilities

      “We will cultivate the culture and
      practice of using and contributing to
      open educational resources.”
    • But using open educational resources – and contributing to them – requires significant change in the culture of higher education.It requires thinking about content as a common resource that raises all boats when shared. (p.11)
      62
    • WA Legislation
      SSHB1946 – two big ideas – share technology and share content.
      (v) Methods and open licensing options for effectively sharing digital content including but not limited to: Open courseware, open textbooks, open journals, and open learning objects…
      63
    • New State Board Policy
      All digital software, educational resources and knowledge produced through competitive grants, offered through and/or managed by the SBCTC, will carry a Creative Commons Attribution License.
      64
    • Student Advocacy
      WA CTC 2009 Student Voice Academy
      (1) CUTTING TEXTBOOK COSTS
      “The high cost of textbooks is a burden to students….”
      Top Issue three years running….
      65
    • Opening 81 Common Courses
      Gates + Legislature + SBCTC + Colleges
      “Open Course Library”
      Designing 81 highest enrolled courses
      Courses will be Digital – can be taught online, hybrid, web-enhanced and/or faculty can re-mix
      Open CC Licensing – everyone has access
      < $30 textbooks … or Free
      81 courses enrollments = $52M+ / year in textbook costs
      Develop a culture of sharing content in the WA CTCs
      66
    • Federal Movement on Open?
      Obama’s American Graduation Initiative
      “$50M / year for the creation of open courseware”

      increasing public access to academic research that is funded by the federal government (free after 6 mos)
      67
      Principle: http://www.taxpayeraccess.org
    • NEW HE Models are En Route
    • Choices:
      (1) Open up and
      leverage global input
      OR
      (2) close up shop
    • Think Big Crazy Ideas….
      We could share all of our instructional digital resources including: courses, textbooks and library resources … anduse others’ digital materials.
      Publicly funded digital content = openly licensed and freely available to those that paid for it.
