OCW, OER and Open Content Licensing


Published on

This presentation was given during the AVLM training at Teaching and Learning Department KU Leuven (AVLM stands for AudioVisual Learning Materials), where a selected team of about 15 participants from all over the world, mostly third world countries, come to KU Leuven to learn how to develop and use AVLM in their educational settings, concerning their specific contexts.
They were particularly interested in taking Open Courses them selves, since education is not for all in al lot of countries.
None of them ever heard of OpenCourseWare, and only for one woman the term "creative commons" rang a bell. It made me realize that we still have a lot of work to do in making the world aware of the importance of openness, open courses and open educational resources.

(Amen! ;) )
