Alex Grech's curator insight, October 31, 2013 6:20 AM

What I find really interesting in this piece is the need for academic institutions to recognise that disruption can also happen from 'within' - the younger or more curious members of faculty who are using the tools they can find to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

A Word For Those Who Say Textbooks Are Hard To Create | FunnyMonkey

A Word For Those Who Say Textbooks Are Hard To Create | FunnyMonkey | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

If you look at content as a product that needs to be sold (ie, as a fixed entity, like a textbook) then your sales channels, your product marketing team, and the skills needed for marketing become necessary for your business. But, this perspective takes a narrow approach on what open content can be, and reduces it to just a replacement for a textbook. This perspective misses how the value of open content accrues over time. Or, in other words, open content should not be blamed for the failure or success of business models that need to sell content.

A group of Apple DIstinguished Educators, including me, published this course in iTunesU in March 2013. It features several multi-touch books focusing on digital etiquette, tagging and meta data, creating and sharing OER, and the need for OER in our increasingly digital media world.

Dawne Tortorella's curator insight, January 28, 2013 9:49 AM

One of the things I've most appreciated about the MOOCs I've participated in is the work faculty and providers have done to make quality resources available free. It certainly makes a big difference in affordable learning.

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy

[EU] Commission presents new Rethinking Education strategy | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

"Digital learning and recent trends in Open Educational Resources (OER) are enabling fundamental changes in the education world, expanding the educational offer beyond its traditional formats and borders. New ways of learning, characterised by personalisation, engagement, use of digital media, collaboration, bottom-up practices and where the learner or teacher is a creator of learning content are emerging, facilitated by the exponential growth in OER available via the internet. Europe should exploit the potential of OER much more than is currently the case. This requires good computer skills, but some Member States are still lagging behind as seen in the Education and Training Monitor 2012, with 9 Member States with over 50% of 16-74 year olds with no or low computer skills. While the use of ICT in education and training has been high on the policy agenda, critical elements are not in place to enable digital learning and OER to be mainstreamed across all education and training sectors. A coherent strategy at EU level could address the scope, size and complexity of the challenges in support of actions of the Member States and the entire chain of stakeholders."

"> xxx institution has been successfully offering hundreds of no charge MOOC courses for years

'No charge' isn't the same as 'open'. Can the contents of these courses be viewed without registration? Can people just 'drop in' to the online synchronous sessions? Did the courses incorporate content from a distributed network of blogs, social media, and other media? Were students able to select their own learning materials, manage the curriculum directly, and determine for themselves what constitutes success?"
