  • From 2012 Paris OER Declaration: Emphasizing that the term Open Educational Resources (OER) was coined at UNESCO’s 2002 Forum on Open Courseware and designates “teaching, learning and research materials in any medium, digital or otherwise, that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions. Open licensing is built within the existing framework of intellectual property rights as defined by relevant international conventions and respects the authorship of the work”;
  • (500 online courses, 8,000 students, largest provider in SUNY system, 70% of SUNY Bachelors programs) CDL students typically have around 16 credits PLA (all sources - including military training) for their Assoc degrees and about 25 for their Baccalaureate,  (Factbook 2011 -12 pps 75-77)

    23. 23. 24The Coursera revolution
    24. 24. “The starting point of connectivism is theindividual. Personal knowledge is comprised of anetwork, which feeds into organizations andinstitutions, which in turn feed back into thenetwork, and then continue to provide learning toindividual. This cycle of knowledgedevelopment (personal to network toorganization) allows learners to remain current intheir field through the connections they haveformed.”George SiemensConnectivism:A Learning Theory for the Digital Agehttp://www.elearnspace.org/Articles/connectivism.htm
    25. 25. “In a connectivist MOOC, people get out of it whatthey put into it,” said Stephen Downes of theNational Research Council of Canada, a pioneerof the early MOOCs. “It’s something like a Yahoogroup or other interest-based community. But ithas a start date and an end date, and it pullspeople out of different networks and plops theminto a new one, which results in new connectionsand gets people hearing new voices.”"Online Mentors to Guide Women Into the Sciences”TAMAR LEWINSeptember 16, 2012
