  3. 3. BCcampus Role Connect Collaborate Innovate
  4. 4. BCcampus 3 Key Activities1.  Federated, secure, and trusted data network for data exchange between institutions2.  Collaborative programs and educational technology shared services involving multi-institutional partnerships that leverage knowledge, reduce costs and generate benefits for students3.  System wide educator support through online communities of practice, professional development strategies, technology training, funding for online program development, and shared re-usable tools and resources
  5. 5. Open Source Software Open-source software (OSS): Computer software that is available in source code form for which the source code and certain other rights normally reserved for copyright holders are provided under a software license that permits users to study, change, and improve the software.
  6. 6. Open Access Research Publication Open Access (OA): Free, immediate, permanent online access to the full text of research articles for anyone, webwide. There are two roads to OA: 1. the "golden road" of OA journal-publishing , where journals provide OA to their articles (either by charging the author-institution for refereeing/publishing outgoing articles instead of charging the user- institution for accessing incoming articles, or by simply making their online edition free for all) 2. the "green road" of OA self-archiving, where authors provide OA to their own published articles, by making their own eprints free for all.
  7. 7. Open Government & Data Open Government: A policy and legal framework to open up access to publicly held information, promoting transparency and enabling wider economic and social gain. •  promote creative and innovative activities, which will deliver social and economic benefits •  make government more transparent and open in its activities, ensuring that the public are better informed about the work of the government and the public sector •  enable more civic and democratic engagement through social enterprise and voluntary and community activities

  12. 12. Open Textbooks •  An emerging development in OER is open textbooks •  An open textbook is an openly-licensed textbook offered online by its author(s). •  The open license sets open textbooks apart from traditional textbooks by allowing users to read online, download, or print the book at no additional cost. •  Open textbooks help solve the problems of the high cost of textbooks, book shortages, and access to textbooks as well as providing the capacity to better meet local teaching and learning needs.“Gov. Schwarzenegger Launches First-in-Nation Initiative toDevelop Free Digital Textbooks for High School Students” “Texas seeks open textbooks.” “Washingtons 2-year colleges out to beat high cost of textbooks.”
  13. 13. Online Program Development•  Starting in 2003 BCcampus issued an annual Online Program Development Fund (OPDF) Request for Proposals (RFP) to all of BCs public post secondary institutions.•  The OPDF call for proposals emphasizes inter- institutional collaboration and partnerships for development of online learning resources.•  Development is focused on for-credit online learning resources that give students access to more programs leading to complete degrees, diplomas and certificates. http://opdf.pbworks.com
  14. 14. Online Program Development•  8.25 million (2003-2009); 2010 $750K•  131 grants awarded (2003-2009)•  100% participation across the post-secondary system•  83% partnerships - mostly inter-institutional but also with K-12, health authorities, not-for-profits, professional associations, e-learning companies, First Nations, foundations, amongst others.•  41 credentials developed in whole or part via OPDF•  317 courses, 10 workshops, 18 web sites/tools and 338 course components (learning objects, labs, textbooks, manuals, videos) developed across almost all academic fields of study•  100% licensed for open free sharing & reuse by all post-secondary
  15. 15. Making OER Open•  Intellectual Property –  creations of the mind for which property rights are recognized –  common types of intellectual property include copyrights, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights and trade secrets•  Copyright –  a set of exclusive rights granted by law to the author or creator of an original work, including the right to copy, distribute and adapt the work –  uses require permission and copyright owners can license or permanently transfer or assign their exclusive rights to others –  exceptions and limitations balance the public interest and include fair dealing (Canada) and fair use (US)•  Licenses that enable reuse, revision, remix and redistribution
