Students connect to faculty/lecturer(s)/ facilitator(s), decide on a project, and choose a license. PUBLISH OER! Edit the materials, add metadata, check for licensing issues, seek guidance as necessary. Present midterm progress report to class, get feedback on quality and time line for completion. Present Final Project, get feedback from class and approval from faculty/lecturer(s)/ facilitator(s)
“ Although the issues are complex, sometimes a simple question can do a lot: if this were my own work, would I want it to be used without my permission in this case? Failing reliance on the Golden Rule , we will plunge into some of the complexities:” “ Using Copyrighted Materials in Your Classroom.” Office of Educational Development – Office of the Vice Provost of Teaching and Learning. (26 Jan 2009). http://teaching.berkeley.edu/copyrighted.html
“ Openness should be built into the process of curriculum design – it should be systematized just like so-called options of air conditioning and power windows in vehicles. As long as openness is separated from the rest of education, it will be seen as a cost-cutting option. Which is really rather silly.” – George Siemens http://www.connectivism.ca/?p=178
“ Unfortunately, universities which refuse to offer distances courses cannot sustain their OCW projects with the OCW 2.0 model. It is unclear to me what – besides credit – they could possibly sell in conjunction with their OCW content in order to sustain themselves financially (particularly in lean times when each and every program on campus is being scrutinized).” – David Wiley Read more: http://opencontent.org/blog/archives/881#ixzz0n35pZV1J Under Creative Commons License: Attribution
While the long term goal for this class is to establish an open, free repository for Berkeley course materials in the form of OER, the short term goal is to connect students to the process of creating OER, and thus forge relationships that will help the project grow as a campus-wide service.
