Innovative Projects in the Publishing of Open Educational Resources

Published on

A presentation given as part of the Open Access Week 2009 at University of Toronto. These slides don't mean much by themselves, but an Adobe Connect recording is here: http://connect.oise.utoronto.ca/p98085499/ and you can download the MP3 here: http://www.archive.org/download/InnovativeProjectsInThePublishingOfOpenEducationalResources/InnovativeProjectsOER.mp3

Abstract:
In Norway, the provincial governments allocate a percentage of the funds for purchasing textbooks to develop an open curriculum database for high school students. In Indonesia, the government purchases the copyright to several hundred school textbooks and makes them available online, to encourage local printers to make cheap editions. In India, the largest university in the world made all their teaching materials available online. In China, the government runs a large national competition for top level courses, making teaching more prestigious, and simultaneously sharing the results.

Around the world, universities, regions and national governments are developing innovative projects that make educational resources freely available online. This presentation will present a number of case studies, discussing institutional incentives and the potential benefits from open sharing. It will also introduce the Peer2Peer University, a free online collaborative learning platform that forms learning groups around the open educational resources that exist.

Stian Håklev is a second-year MA student in the Higher Education program. He is a co-founder of the Peer2Peer University, a co-chair of OISE's Open Access sub-committee, and has given a number of international talks on the topic of open education.

Event sponsored by the Education Commons, OISE, University of Toronto
