Open education...opens doors

If we are to understand what open means in an education context, then we need a holistic understanding of the concept. This presentation suggest that we should be looking a three broad domains. 1) open content (OER, Open Access), 2) open process (e.g. usually espoused by a particular open proponent ) and 3) open Infrastructure (distributed education, open universities) to appreciate the particular status of a particular open initiative.The opposite of "open" is not necessarily closed. Binary thinking won't help us understand what is meant by this commonly used term.
