Free Textbooks Spell Disruption for College Publishers

Free Textbooks Spell Disruption for College Publishers | OER in Postsecondary | Scoop.it

In their lawsuit, filed in March, publishers Cengage Learning, Pearson Education, and MacMillan Higher Education accused Boundless of copyright infringement, false advertising, and unfair competition. Diaz denies all the charges. He says his company uses only public information and doesn't actually make or sell textbooks. "We don't look at ourselves as an e-book or an online textbook or even textbook 2.0," he says. "We see it as how do you create the next-generation content platform, which is much more than a textbook."

I like the idea of getting started in annotation, saving and sharing with a few tools rather than being overwhelmed by many. Beginners can get started here.

Which Country is Leading Online Education?

Which Country is Leading Online Education? | OER in Postsecondary | Scoop.it

“The ease and convenience it offers learners appeal to people just about everywhere, especially those who are trying to balance work, family, and other obligations. Yet certain nations have embraced online education more than others, leading the way both in terms of the number and variety of programs and new innovations to online learning itself. Here, www.onlineuniverstities.com highlighted some of the nations that are really stepping up the game when it comes to online education, though with the proliferation of high-speed internet connections and a growing need for highly educated people in technical positions around the world, other nations likely aren’t far behind.”

Oppikirjamaraton: How to Write an Open Textbook in a Weekend - Creative Commons

Oppikirjamaraton: How to Write an Open Textbook in a Weekend - Creative Commons | OER in Postsecondary | Scoop.it

In Finland 30 maths enthusiasts got together to write a free (CC-BY) textbook in a weekend. It's the process that's interesting here, not the open textbook angle. Taken from software development notions like hackathons or codesprints, these book sprints are excellent ways of getting books written (I was part of one to write a book on technology for OER).

At Educause, a discussion about OER

At Educause, a discussion about OER | OER in Postsecondary | Scoop.it

DENVER — MOOCs are on the tip of everyone’s tongue here at the annual Educause meeting, presumably because of their scale and the technologies their recent champions have built to support that scale.
But in his opening keynote, Clay Shirky, an author and assistant professor at New York University, said the most provocative aspect of MOOCs is not their massiveness; it is their openness
