Britain Announces Plan to Make Publicly Financed Research Freely Available | OER & Open Education News | Scoop.it

Throwing its weight behind open access, the British government has declared it wants to make all research paid for with public money freely available online. If it succeeds, the move is likely to have significant consequences for publishers, and will boost the international momentum of the open-access movement.

A Collaborative Guide to Best Digital Learning Practices for K-12 | DMLcentral | OER & Open Education News | Scoop.it

To teach responsibly in a digital age, we have to respect what our tools can do to help us learn together -- and what tools alone cannot do. We need to be prepared to adapt them to our specific needs as teachers and learners. We need tools that are as open as possible, that are designed to encourage students to participate and not simply consume. And we need to support teachers who are also learning how to use new tools for the most innovative, imaginative, interactive teaching.

Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education. A group of three large academic publishers has sued the start-up Boundless Learning in federal court, alleging that the young company, which produces open-education alternatives to printed textbooks, has stolen the creative expression of their authors and editors, violating their intellectual-property rights. The publishers Pearson, Cengage Learning, and Macmillan Higher Education filed their joint complaint last month in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York...

3 Major Publishers Sue Open-Education Textbook Start-Up

3 Major Publishers Sue Open-Education Textbook Start-Up | OER & Open Education News | Scoop.it

This relates to a legal objection to a technical solution to resource discovery: "To gain access to the digital alternatives, students select the traditional books assigned in their classes, and Boundless pulls content from an array of open-education sources to knit together a text that the company claims is as good as the designated book. The company calls this mapping of printed book to open material “alignment”—a tactic the complaint said creates a finished product that violates the publishers’ copyrights."
