Open Educational Resources at Lane Community College

  1. 1. James Manning, ASLCC President Jeremy Riel, former ASLCC President OERs and Lane A glimpse into the future of education www.bit.ly/laneoer

  3. 3. bit.ly/laneoer The web is a crazy place… ? ?
  4. 4. Why do textbooks cost a fortune? Are they the only way to teach today? bit.ly/laneoer How did we get here? First , a bit on books’ role in the history of education. The School of Athens by Raphael
  5. 5. But they still limited users, often requiring time, money, and even social influence bit.ly/laneoer Books gave portability to knowledge + =
  6. 6. Trinity college library bit.ly/laneoer Limitations of pre-networked learning <ul><li>Required physical ownership and storage, often requiring money and land. Libraries were formed, but were always limited in what they held by space and financial resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Text was not easily connected or searchable. Study usually required front-to-back reading, even if irrelevant. </li></ul><ul><li>Research and publication often </li></ul><ul><li>required financial capital and </li></ul><ul><li>influence. </li></ul>
  7. 7. bit.ly/laneoer Today’s knowledge market As books were the best way to impart knowledge, publishers naturally flourished (especially in higher education )! College students are a captive audience. They need to buy books – instructors are rarely available on-demand and it is widely thought there is no other alternative! Textbooks have become ingrained in the traditional culture of higher education.
  8. 8. Are books alone the best way today? bit.ly/laneoer Our brains think interconnectedly , not linearly page to page Knowledge needs to be free and found to grow both itself and the user Books lack the searchability, connectivity, flexibility, and ubiquity which the open web can provide. Dynamic information can be found and used much more efficiently, increasing success in learning (which is probably why people fall asleep at presentations…)
  9. 9. bit.ly/laneoer The possibility of open knowledge Gutenberg’s press (version 2.0) – knowledge produced even cheaper and more widely distributed than ever before. His vision amplified via the web. The cost of participation has been all but eliminated Open licensing allows for the flexible use of information and actually gains richness through increased participation and use. The ultraportability of knowledge – electronic, shared, and relevant, usable on multiple mediums. More people participating and contributing under open licensing eliminate barriers under which knowledge transfer operated.
  10. 10. Why would people give info away for free? Not all info should or can be free. There were previously only relatively few players in the information market and info creation was limited, costly, and time consuming. Now, due to the advent and mass use of the web, there are exponential increases in participation of knowledge sharing! bit.ly/laneoer Why OERs? <ul><li>OERs can complement and improve learning today: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Affordable or completely free to students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Relevant and up-to-date </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Flexible (meets needs of individual students and instructors) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic, searchable, and interactive </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Diversity in perspectives </li></ul></ul>

  15. 15. bit.ly/laneoer Empowering both students and faculty <ul><li>Flexible learning components through hyperlinked and multimedia content - works more like our brains do! </li></ul><ul><li>Addresses various learning styles and student needs through multiple content delivery systems and styles (e.g. print, e-readers, online, text-to-speech) – content is ultraportable ! </li></ul><ul><li>Offers students the ability to learn and interact in a hyperlinked and dynamic information environment – critical to success in today’s world! </li></ul>
  16. 16. bit.ly/laneoer Empowering both students and faculty <ul><li>Instructors can modify, add, subtract, or create course materials based on their personal curriculum needs or interests – offers excellent professional development opportunities! </li></ul><ul><li>Content is easier to keep up-to-date and relevant to Lane students </li></ul>
  17. 17. bit.ly/laneoer An open vision of learning <ul><li>Open access to learning. Eliminating traditional barriers of accessing and sharing info. For knowledge to grow, it must be free and found. </li></ul><ul><li>An open market for educational materials. Open resources can be continually updated, expanded, and improved to increase richness, relevance, and value to students – everyone can share. </li></ul><ul><li>Giving learning value to both students and instructors – fostering a culture of lifelong learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Nonlinear educational methods – just like how our minds work! </li></ul>
