Oskar Almazan's curator insight, May 24, 9:11 AM
Open educational resources (OER) are found in the public domain and can be used for free for teaching, learning, research, and other educational purposes. These materials can be retained, reused, revised, remixed, and redistributed. These “5R permissions” of OER allow you to not only access the materials and resources free of charge, but also to make them even better. Sounds good, right? But what’s really out there, and why should you use these resources?

Encouraging Faculty To Adopt OER: Takeaways From Day One at Open Ed ’16 – Blended Librarian

Encouraging Faculty To Adopt OER: Takeaways From Day One at Open Ed ’16 – Blended Librarian | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
This week in Richmond, VA open education enthusiasts have gathered for three days to share their ideas and experiences for advancing open education and promoting affordable learning content.

The sense among attendees is that at the Thirteenth Annual Open Education Conference the message is shifting from defining what “open” is and the virtues of openness in education to a focus on the practice of open pedagogy and what it means to engage students not only in learning but the creation of open learning content.

Are OERs Sustainable? ~ Stephen Downes

Are OERs Sustainable? ~ Stephen Downes | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

This is an excellent posts looking at five key questions regarding the sustainability of open educational resources (OERs), backed with examples and references. Here they are

1. "Is the production of OERs sustainable?" After the end of the UKOER funding stream, there was "a dramatic decline in the number of resources added to JORUM." But a "huge amount" of content is being produced on other platforms. "I see this not as a petering out of OER production, but a shift in its context."

2. "Are OER platforms sustainable?" We don't know yet. "Entire platforms can disappear. In the non-open world, the closing of a platform means the loss of its content. We don’t have that problem in the OER world."

3. "Are communities of open practice sustainable?" There are examples both ways, but "the continuation of the OER conference itself suggests a positive answer to the question about communities."

4, "Are the OERs themselves sustainable: are they being updated so as not to lose relevance?" A tiny number of resources get remixed, but is that bad? Most academic publications aren't cited, but a small number get a huge number of citations. "To decide whether too much or too little adaptation is happening, we need to know the distribution that “'should' exist, and it’s not clear how to do this."

5. "Do OERs promote an awareness of sustainability across all subjects?" We don't know.

Complexities in utilizing free digital learning resources

Complexities in utilizing free digital learning resources | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
What do you mean, 'gratis' or 'libre'? It's 'free' and so I'm taking it! Here's a scenario I have encountered more than a few times. Officials at a ministry of education in ___ tell me that: They've bought lots of computers. They've put computer labs in their schools. They've connected (most of) their schools. And: Lots of their teachers have (inexpensive) laptops. Now their students are getting tablets. Along the way, they've been teaching basic computer literacy. Which leads them to ask: Now what should we do? (In my experience, this query may be a result of an evaluation that showed little or no 'impact of technology on student learning’, despite massive amounts of money that have been invested … or it may simply come about because a lot of initiatives are coming to an end and the groups involved in them are looking for stuff to do. There are other impetuses as well, but I am regularly reminded that the motivations which animate this sort of question can vary quite a bit!) In such instances, I usually respond by first congratulating them on all of these great accomplishments. A lot of hard work by a lot of dedicated people was needed to make these things happen, and no doubt lots of difficult challenges popped up along the way. However: As difficult (and expensive) as it may have been to achieve all of these things, in many ways they represent just table settings, and not the main course. In other words (and to adopt another metaphor, in case you didn't like that last one), they are some of the key raw materials that can be used to help do something purposeful with technology to supports learning that has real, demonstrable impact. what a minute: where's the content? It's about the content, not the container, after all. (That will be the last metaphor for a while, I promise.) As devices proliferate, and as better and more widespread connectivity enables connections to networks from different places using a variety of different devices, the value will decreasingly be in the devices themselves, but rather in the educational content they enable learners and teachers to access (and in the connections to communities of other people as well). OK, they counter, if the value is indeed in the content, and not the container ... where do we get this content? The textbooks we use do not have straightforward digital equivalents or complements. We really haven't budgeted for any digital learning content. We spent almost all of our money on hardware (and a little on related training). We know that there is a lot of 'free' content available on the Internet that would be useful to teachers and students. Can't we just use a bunch of this stuff? And if so: How might we go about doing this? ---

The cost of developing an open textbook: $80,000 – $130,000 | Tony Bates | Cibereducação | Scoop.it

Open textbooks may be free, but they are not without cost. So what is the cost of developing an open textbook from scratch? Answer: a minimum of $80,000, more likely around $130,000. Here’s how I arrived at the figure, based on my own open textbook, Teaching in a Digital Age.

The changing value of knowledge (Cristobal Cobo)

"The notion of openness in education is usually associated just with resources - whether content or technologies - and initiatives in tis field have often focused too narrowly on the mere generation of those resources, paying little attention to the "social life" of materials and relevant cultural practices.

Open Educational Resources (OER) and, most recently, the so-called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), among other open education initiatives, seem to be reshaping the value of content in Higher Education (HE).

However, it is worth reflecting on the extent to which offering open content may be considered disruptive these days. In this presentation I will argue that we need to go beyond the content-centered focus of OER and look at the contexts of learning, both inside and outside of formal education. That means to better articulate at least three key dimensions: content, containers (platforms,technologies), and context."
