CRE Resource Creation and Discovery

  1. 1. CRE Resource Creation and Discovery via CREducation.org Presented by Bill Warters Wayne State University w.warters@wayne.edu
  2. 2. Agenda  Introduction to CRETE  Overview of Open Educational Resources “movement”  Walk through some of what we’ve collected/created on the CREducation.org site  Review a fun (and freely available) video game - Cool School  Introduce you to eXe, the open-source e-learning editor (and give away copies!)  Think together about ways to create more sharing among the Conflict Resolution community 2

  4. 4. CRETE Mission - broadly defined CRETE works with teacher education at pre-service and in-service levels to develop teachers’ critical skills in conflict education and classroom management. On the web at www.creducation.org 4 Funded by FIPSE Project P116B040920, JAMS Foundation, Gund Foundation
  5. 5.

  10. 10. Resource Control and Containment  Much Energy has been expended exploring ways to control and constrain the use of video, audio, pictures and text that, while appropriate for educational use purposes, due to copyright restrictions, should only be made accessible at certain moments, durations, locations, and for users in certain roles or statuses... 10
  11. 11. Focus has been on Digital Rights Management  This is a very complex area, especially when you apply it to the Research and Education context.  Critics say that DRM has been unbalanced in favor of the rights of the content creator/ owner in contrast to the rights of the user/ consumer.  The term DRM itself has become contested As already noted, many DRM opponents consider "digital rights management" to be a misnomer. They argue that DRM manages rights (or access) the same way prison manages freedom and often refer to it as "digital restrictions management". Alternatively, ZDNet Executive Editor David Berlind suggests the term "Content Restriction, Annulment and Protection" or "CRAP" for short 11 from wikipedia entry on DRM
  12. 12. A Shift Occurring in Content Use Goals? We are experiencing a profound shift away from containment and control of resources and toward systems that will enable the following educational content uses.... Locate, Collate, Rate, Annotate, Educate 12
  13. 13. What do we mean by open? “...educational materials and resources offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some license to re-mix, improve and redistribute.” • free, as in no fees, does not mean open • open access does not mean openly licensed 13

  27. 27. Who Uses Moodle? In the U.S., Moodle has been adopted by many Liberal Arts Colleges, such as Bryn Mawr, Carlton, DePauw, Lewis and Clark, Macalester, Reed, and Smith, as well as numerous larger schools such as U.C.L.A., San Francisco State, The University of Georgia, The University of Minnesota, and many others. Moodle doubled its growth among US community colleges last year. In addition to its extensive use in schools in Australia and New Zealand, Moodle is widely used in Europe, especially in Spain and the U.K. One of the largest Moodle installation in the world is the Open University in the U.K. with over 200,000 students using Moodle. There are 251 registered sites with more than 10,000 users. The site with the most users is moodle.org with 49 courses and 404,074 users.
