Presentation at University of Toronto at Scarborough and UofT Missisauga as part of Open Access Week 2010.
Abstract: You might have heard about MIT OpenCourseWare, but did you know that there are 12,000 Chinese courses online, 460 Indonesian textbooks, or 5000 hours of video from one single Pakistani university? This presentation will take you on a whirlwind tour of global open educational resources, and give a sense of the diversity of projects that exist, and how they have developed. The University of Toronto is a very multicultural institution in a global city: how can these resources be used by individual students to enrich their learning – and how can these students and teachers contribute to resources in their own languages?
