    • Observing Open E-Learning Content: Roadmap for Educational Policy and Institutions and Hands-On Tips for Practitioners. Guntram Geser, Veronika Hornung-Prähauser, Sandra Schaffert Salzburg Research, EduMedia Group Austria ICL Conference, 26 th September 2007 Special Session “Open Educational Resources and Practices” Co-funded by the EU Com mission
    • Agenda ● Background - EU Project Open eLearning Content Observatory Services (OLCOS) ● Some findings of the OLCOS Roadmap 2012 ● OLCOS online support for skill development- OLCOS Tutorials & Collections Co-funded by the page: 2 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • OLCOS Motivation How to find the right way to use Open Educational Resources in an era of Web 2.0? Co-funded by the page: 3 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Background ● OLCOS is a Transversal Action under the Euroepan eLearning Programme (January 2006 – December 2007) ● Main goal: To promote the production, sharing and re-use of Open Educational Resources (OER) in Europe and beyond ● Six partners, co-ordinator: Salzburg Research, EduMedia Group Co-funded by the page: 4 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Project Results: OLCOS KNOWWARE http://www.olcos.org Co-funded by the page: 5 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • OER Community contribution http://www.olcos.org Co-funded by the page: 6 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • The OLCOS Roadmap 2012 The OLCOS roadmap, published in January 2007, • road mapping time-horizon set for 2012(+), • identifies drivers/enablers and inhibitors of open educational practices and resources, • provides a set of recommendations (25 recs.) for decision makers – from political and institutional level to individual teachers and students! The roadmap (~150 pages) is available for download at http://www.olcos.org/english/roadmap/ Required future work: Monitoring progress in open educational practices and resources Co-funded by the page: 7 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Some Roadmap Findings (1) 1) Massive investment in ICT over the last 10 years, but little change in educational practices • Teacher-centred “knowledge-transfer” model still dominates • Expectations to bring about student-centred and collaborative learning approaches have not been fulfilled (2) Concerns about non-alignment of educational institutions with demand for knowledge society competences and skills • However, still “top-down” approach of national e-content repositories that want to deliver a “critical mass” of learning objects to teachercentred education (3) Easy access to (digital) OER is considered important to drive Lifelong Learning agenda • Participation in Lifelong Learning is critical in Europe’s competition with other increasingly knowledge-based economies and societies Co-funded by the page: 8 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Some Roadmap Findings (2) (4) Business models in open educational resources are tricky • The right mix of income streams must be found – public or/and private funding, sponsorships, donations, fee based services… • There will be a growing competition on scarce funding resources (5) Difficulty to find a balanced approach for open and commercial educational offerings • Entrenched commercial interests of educational publishers – will make it difficult to establish innovative private-public partnerships related to OER • Little innovation by most academic and educational publishers • Much of existing digital content has simply been transposed from other forms, prepared for traditional models of learning based on knowledge transfer (6) International interest in, and funding of, open educational resources Co-funded by the page: 9 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Some Roadmap Findings (3) (7) Healthy competition among leading institutions in providing free access to educational resources (8) At present most available open educational content is static teaching and learning material (“course ware) in closed formats (9) Institutional barriers to develop open content repositories • Lack of incentives & reward mechanisms for academic and other teachers to excel in producing and openly sharing of high-value teaching material • Often lack of clear-cut regulations regarding IPR/copyrights for material that could be made available • Often content incorporates some material from third parties under the assumption of copyright exceptions or “fair use” (copyright clearance is costly!) (10) Educational open content repositories will need to think more thoroughly about how to be useful for communities of practice Co-funded by the page: 10 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • OLCOS Brief Assessment ►Current focus of initiatives is on providing access to resources, but it is important to also promote educational innovation and change ►Delivering OER to the still dominant model of teacher-centred knowledge-transfer will have little innovative impact ►Priority should be on promoting open educational practices and focus on developing competences and skills for the knowledge society – students and teachers Co-funded by the page: 11 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission

    • Introduction: PLAN the use of OER Co-funded by the page: 17 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Introduction: PLAN the use of OER: Expected benefits of OER ● Viewpoint of educational networks and institutions, e.g. ● Higher return on investment of taxpayers‘ money ● Enrich the pool of resources ● Lead to a leverage in the educational quality of content through quality control, feedback and improvements ● Viewpoint of teachers and learners, e.g. ● Offer a broader range of subjects and topics ● Save time and effort through re-using ● Provide learning communities ● Promote use-centred approaches Source: Geser (2007): OLCOS Roadmap 2012, http://www.olcos.org Co-funded by the page: 18 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • Introduction: PLAN the use of OER: How to start? Didactical questions before you design your open practice and educational resources regarding the following questions: ● What are the target groups, their needs and competence? ● What are the concrete topics and learning goals, as described e. g. in a curriculum? ● How the instructional design and respectively the learning strategies, e.g. are the students involved in the creation of the open content? ● What technical equipment do we have? Co-funded by the page: 19 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • CHOOSE a license Co-funded by the EU Com mission
    • Link to Tutorial 4: CHOOSE a license: Benefits In the E.U. everybody has to ask the owner of the copyright of learning materials before using, copying, modifying the learning content and so on, and to enter into a contract. With an open content license,you could profit about ● clear descriptions of the rights of the author(s) and the users ● licensing formulations which are proved by legal practitioner ● the awareness level of the license ● the possibility (for others) to search for your content with most of the search- engines, when they support your license ● and (if you choose such a license) you could be sure, that your name is used and that all materials, that are based on your work are published under the same conditions (share alike) Co-funded by the EU Com mission
    • CHOOSE a license: Suggestions and tips for decision First of all, we recommend to choose a popular license to profit about • it popularity and the possibility (for others) to search for your content with most of the search-engines, when they support your license • to be ensure the reusablity of the content (especially when a share alike licence should be chosen: It is not very easy to mix up different licenses when mixing up open educational content). Remember, that you can allways place an individual contract, e.g. for permitting commercial use, to vary from the license text! Co-funded by the EU Com mission
    • CHOOSE a license: Creative Commons http://creativecommons.org/education/publish-website Co-funded by the EU Com mission
    • Tutorial 1: SEARCH & FIND OER Co-funded by the page: 24 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • SEARCH & FIND OER: overview Different choices: Effective search with search engines OER search Media specific search Searching in dedicated OER sites Co-funded by the page: 25 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • SEARCH & FIND OER: Effective search with search engines In a project a group of students is working on a short presentation about pollination of apples. If you like to search for the fruit quot;applequot; you should exclude all findings about computers and operating systems. Every search engine use a own request- language, but nearly all of the major search engines understand the following request. apple +fruit -macintosh -mac -computer http://www.wikieducator.org/Open_Educational_Content/olcos/SEARCH#Effective_sear Co-funded by the page: 26 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
    • SEARCH & FIND OER: OER Search In a project a group of students is working on a short presentation about the settings and circumstances of Cosimo de' Medici. In the following sequences we will lead you through the search process * the Yahoo CC Search http://www.olcos.org/english/Yahoo-Search.html * and the Google Search http://www.olcos.org/english/Google-Search.html * using the Creative Commons Search http://www.olcos.org/english/Screencast-CCS-Search.html Co-funded by the page: 27 OLCOS - Open eLearning Content Observatory Services EU Com mission
