  • At Educause 2011 there were two important announcements:Bb’s decision to Share content and support open licensingPearson’s announcement to offer a free LMS to share both proprietary & open content
  • In 2009, the VA legislature approved HB1941
  • This is not my presentation both in terms of the contentas well as in terms of exclusive ownership—like copyright.Let me tell you what I mean..
  • Here are the two questions I hope to answer for you today
  • Let’s set up the context of where we are
  • This is not an iPad. It may not be a very good product at all. But it throws down the gauntlet for making mobile tablet technology cheap and widely accessible.
  • This project demonstrates the power of the Internet, of collaboration, of sharing.
  • This is not my presentation both in terms of the contentas well as in terms of exclusive ownership—like copyright.Let me tell you what I mean..
  • This is not my presentation both in terms of the contentas well as in terms of exclusive ownership—like copyright.Let me tell you what I mean..
  • I adapted it presentation from another OER presentation by Dr. David Wiley, a professor at BYU and a leader in the OER movement. He knows much more about this issue than I do, so why not go straight to the source? But isn’t that plagiarism? No. Why--
  • His work is licensed in a way that allows me to use it freely under specific conditions
  • His work is licensed in a way that allows me to use it freely under specific conditions
  • As long as I credit the original, I am free to use it however I want. I can also license it any way I want
  • This is not my presentation both in terms of the contentas well as in terms of exclusive ownership—like copyright.Let me tell you what I mean..
  • So, let’s define our terms
  • An educational artifact
  • Not everyone shares this philosophy. Think about the term Intellectual Property. Ex. Of professor copyrighting student workThis has to do with organizational culture. OER aren’t just objects, repositories, but exchanges. A new of of doing business.
  • An educational artifact
  • This is not my presentation both in terms of the contentas well as in terms of exclusive ownership—like copyright.Let me tell you what I mean..
  • An educational artifact
  • Who will step in to fill the need? InnovatorsWe may not know what the future holds, but education, particularly postsecondary, has never been at greater risk of being disrupted like other industries: Newspaper Music Entertainment
  • How do we scale what we currently do to meet this need? Higher ed is not affordable for the majority who will demand it
  • Especially, networked digital technologies have fundamentally changed the landscape of education. Think back to the YouTube video and a number of other examples. The Internet is a powerful tool and people are discovering they don’t necessarily NEED college to accomplish what they want to accomplish
  • Do we accept and embrace this fact? If so, what does it fundamentally change what we do? If it isn’t about delivering content, or degrees, or even a social & intellectual experience
  • An educational artifact
  • Full-time students spend approximately $1,000 on textbooks every year.
  • Full-time students spend approximately $1,000 on textbooks every year.
