  • What is the same about these? (Discussion) Possible answer: color palatte, face, creativityPoint: both are covered under the full protection of the law; have full protection of copyright law, anything I create has the same protection as the most expensive movie ever created, all copyright is pervasive...what is the impact of this? Wel, it impacts the way we share, the way we teach, the way we learn.
  • What is the role of Openness in Education?Education is SharingTeacher share knowledge and skills, feedback and criticism, encouragementStudents share questions, assignments, feedback
  • Knowledge. Ideas are non-rivalrous. They can be given without being given away.

  • Even with printnewspapers, if I want section B of the of the Wall StreetJournal, and my colleagueisreadingit, we can’tsharethatsectionat the same time.CC licensedphoto http://www.flickr.com/photos/62693815@N03/6277209256/
  • Because of the Internet, my colleague and I can view the same page simultaneously with millions of other people all over the world…and practically for free.Fundamental shift…we can share pervasively
  • What the Internet enables, copyright forbids.We can’t share.The tension this creates is a common part of the academic life we live.
  • At its core, open materials are 4RsFirst three are what impact teaching and learningBundling multiple texts is expensive:Focused on return of investment of textbookRevise: reduce the amount of materialsOpportunity for students to engage in materials…engaging students to revise and add to the textbook for their courseFree is awesome…but its just a part of whatthisis about
  • Open source software community has itThere are broad global uses of CC outside of education as well(Click on hyperlink) Discuss 3 layers of licensing:Human Readable (language means I can understand it); Legal Code (legalese); Machine Readable (Google search can pick it up)Demo Advanced Google search and looking for CC logo (generally found at the bottom of webpages)Case against using CC NC for materials you create is removing the option to print materialsfor studentsCC button says it gives permissionCCBY means attribute it to the original authorCreates professional networkPersonal connectionsCommerical Use: can someone use the material Sharealike: revise but keep the same licenseNC License hurts when printing: need to have a sustainable process; CK 12 agreement under $5 per book; extra piece; we are still living in a world where we need print materialsIf Kscope is funding faculty time, materials created must be CCBY
  • Openly sharing materials is powerful
  • Click the logo to access the site. Talk about OER. Talk about projects, and how much grant money has funded the content development…but challenge in adoption. The “if you build it they will come notion doesn’t necessarily in higher education.”
  • Kaleidoscope Project GoalsUse OER to improve Student Business faculty are sharing with each otherWhen we started we had developers and adopters: not useful language and falseCollaboration group expandedKaleidoscope uses (OER) to improve student success. The project works by using the best of existing OER to reduce textbook costs to $0; use learning analytics analyze assessment, activity and success data to guide faculty members in continually improving the effectiveness of the open resources; supporting faculty within and across institutions to collaborate, share, and build community
  • Recent research (conducted by the Florida Virtual Campus) quantifies the ways high textbook costs affect student persistence and success. More than 60% of students report not having purchase textbooks at some point due to the costNearly a quarter (23%) of students regularly go without textbooks due to their costDue to the high cost of textbooks:35% of students report taking fewer courses31% report not registering for a course14% have dropped a course10% have withdrawn from a courseLink to research source: http://www.openaccesstextbooks.org/pdf/2012_Exec_Sum_Student_Txtbk_Survey.pdf
  • Lumen-led projects are giving students 100% free, digital access to all materials on the first day of the course. With this step alone, institutions have already boosted student success and retention simply by taking textbook costs out of the equation.   If that is the day 1 impact of OER, just think about the other ways we can move the needle on student success by designing, adopting, measuring success and improving OER-based courses. That is what Lumen is about.

  • 27. Support for the Pilot • Discovery: finding and evaluating resources • Licensing: use, attribution, • Issue Resolution: addressing unforeseen needs and challenges • Program Evaluation: facilitating participation in OER global impact study www.lumenlearning.com
