Milestones • By fall 2014, 50% of all undergrad courses have been through the eResources revision process. • By fall 2015, 100% of all undergrad courses will have been through the process (974 courses) • By fall 2016, 100% of all graduate courses will have been through the process.

  27. 27. The Cape Town Open Education Declaration: Open education is not limited to just open educational resources. It also draws upon open technologies that facilitate collaborative, flexible learning and the open sharing of teaching practices that empower educators to benefit from the best ideas of their colleagues. It may also grow to include new approaches to assessment, accreditation and collaborative learning. Understanding and embracing innovations like these is critical to the long term vision of this movement. Source: http://www.capetowndeclaration.org/read-the-declaration The Open Education Consortium: Open education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness worldwide. Source: http://www.oeconsortium.org/about-oec/ Opensource.com: Open education is a philosophy about the way people should produce, share, and build on knowledge. Proponents of open education believe everyone in the world should have access to high-quality educational experiences and resources, and they work to eliminate barriers to this goal. Such barriers might include high monetary costs, outdated or obsolete materials, and legal mechanisms that prevent collaboration among scholars and educators.

  31. 31. Commitment 9 Map existing digitally available educational resources at the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport and its directly managed organizations and identify those that can be released under the Creative Commons Attribution open license. Responsible: Minister of Education, Science, Research and Sport Deadline: June 30, 2015 Commitment 10 Map existing repositories at the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport and its directly managed organizations. Define what characteristics should be satisfied by the central repository for storing open educational resources. Determine which of the existing repositories can be used for publishing open educational resources, including estimated necessary adjustments and anticipated financial impacts. Responsible: Minister of Education, Science, Research and Sport Deadline: June 30, 2015 It appears that the current procurement process of educational resources does give the contracting authority sufficient flexibility to release these resources under an open license. This process therefore needs to be revisited and adjusted. Also, considering that the process of purchasing learning resources also affects issues of copyright and public procurement, it is appropriate for the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport to cooperate with the Ministry of Culture (Copyright Act) and the Office for Public Procurement.

  35. 35. •15 years ago the term “Open Educational Resources” was created, the Budapest Open Access Initiative was launched, and the first Creative Commons licenses were released; •10 years ago the Cape Town Open Education Declaration was written; •5 years ago the first Open Education Week took place and the first OER World Congress was held, resulting in the Paris OER Declaration. The Year of Open is an opportunity for everyone working towards an open future to make some noise, to bring attention to what we're doing, why we do it, and what impacts it has. The Year of open is also a time for action: to invite others to join us in creating a collaborative, effective, engaging, and equitable future.
