OLnet: Learning from research projects


Published on

This presentation is based on work within OLnet (http://olnet.org) to consider ways in which Open Educational Resources (OER) can have impact in education. It looks at the ways in which the field has developed and the current Key Challenges (http://ci.olnet.org) as well as future trends. Three potential impact areas for OER are picked out as the power for change, viral learning, and the evidence hunt around OER.

  5. 5. Open Educational Resources olnet.org “ OER are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use or re-purposing by others. Open educational resources include full courses, course materials, modules, textbooks, streaming videos, tests, software, and any other tools, materials, or techniques used to support access to knowledge. ” (Atkins, Seely Brown & Hammond, 2007:4)
