  • In OLnet we are harnessing the interest of people across the world in a common area to identify research issues and then apply our “collective intelligence” by sharing ideas and evidence supported by tools (such as Compendium, Cohere and Cloudworks).

    7. 11. I am currently in the Army on a 6 month tour in Iraq. It has been difficult for me to get computer access consistently but when I have been able to go on open learn I have enjoyed the opportunity. The purpose of my learning is mainly self development but also work related. I believe OpenLearn is a brilliant concept. It challenges traditionally held views about education. OpenLearn IS the way teaching & learning need to be. Free. No boundaries. Web-based, self-paced, 365-24-7, collaborative. User feedback Probably the best on-line resource for language learning I have come across.
    8. 12. Our motivations <ul><li>The philosophy of open content matches the Open University’s mission. </li></ul><ul><li>Open Content is a developing movement : join sooner rather than later. </li></ul><ul><li>The Risks in doing nothing: technology and globalisation need to be addressed. </li></ul><ul><li>A route for outreach beyond our student body that builds on our good experience of broadcast with the BBC. </li></ul><ul><li>A chance to learn how to draw on the world as a resource and introduce new technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>A Demonstration of the quality of Open University materials in new regions. </li></ul><ul><li>A testbed for new technology and new ways of working. </li></ul><ul><li>A way to work with external funders who share similar aims and ideals. </li></ul>OpenLearn = an experiment to understand more OpenLearn: Motivation and futures OECD Expert Workshop 26 th October 2006

    14. 19. OLnet and Collective Intelligence Collective intelligence: augmented functions that enabled by the existence of a community. Collective intelligence emerges through the coexistence of people in the same environment . In OLnet we aim to develop a software infrastructure that exploits the collective action and interaction of a community of users online in an “ intelligent way”; that is to say: obtaining effects and reaching goals that exceed single users and community capability and intentions.
