Commonwealth of Learning - Perspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational Resources: An Asian Perspective | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it

Higher education has experienced phenomenal growth in all parts of Asia over the last two decades — from the Korean peninsula in the east to the western borders of Central Asia.

 

This expansion, coupled with a diversity of delivery and technology options, has meant that more and more young Asians are experiencing tertiary education within their own countries.

ChrisPegler's curator insight, January 23, 2013 8:33 AM

You can view a PDF of the University of Leeds OER Guidance (Nov 2012) online from LeedsBlogs. I attending a session by Neil Morris and Dave Lewis on this as the HEA/SEDA conference last year. Their sllides are here http://www.heacademy.ac.uk/assets/documents/oer/Neil_Morris.pptx if you want to see the back story on this. Very sensible and do-able. Congratulations.

 

Scoop.it is not entirely keen on the URL for the guidance (note that this is now described as guidance rather than policy) so here is the link to the download: https://elgg.leeds.ac.uk/eoeri/weblog/22664.html

Gabi Witthaus's curator insight, January 10, 2013 9:10 AM

Tony Bates shares ten quite specific predictions (or "forecasts" as he prefers to call them) for online learning in the next five years. The second most dramatic one is the increased use of open textbooks: "One year: 25-35%; Three years: 45-55%; five years: 90-95%.

 

And in case you're wondering, the most dramatic change is "Expect the unexpected: (One year: 100%; three years: 100%; five years: 100%)."

Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States | The Sloan Consortium

Changing Course: Ten Years of Tracking Online Education in the United States | The Sloan Consortium | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it
The tenth annual survey, a collaborative effort between the Babson Survey Research Group and the College Board, is the leading barometer of online learning in the United States.

 

Over 6.7 million students were taking at least one online course during the fall 2011 term, an increase of 570,000 students over the previous year.Thirty-two percent of higher education students now take at least one course online.Only 2.6 percent of higher education institutions currently have a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), another 9.4 percent report MOOCs are in the planning stages.Academic leaders remain unconvinced that MOOCs represent a sustainable method for offering online courses, but do believe that they provide an important means for institutions to learn about online pedagogy.Seventy-seven percent of academic leaders rate the learning outcomes in online education as the same or superior to those in face-to-face.Only 30.2 percent of chief academic officers believe that their faculty accept the value and legitimacy of online education - a rate is lower than recorded in 2004.The proportion of chief academic leaders that say that online learning is critical to their long-term strategy is at a new high of 69.1 percent.

The effect of open access and downloads ('hits') on citation impact: a bibliography of studies


Via Martin Weller
more...
Martin Weller's curator insight, January 7, 2013 4:49 AM

Despite significant growth in the number of research papers available through open access, principally through author self-archiving in institutional archives,it is estimated that only c. 20% of the number of papers published annually are open access. It is up to the authors of papers to change this. Why might open access be of benefit to authors? One universally important factor for all authors is impact, typically measured by the number of times a paper is cited (some older studies have estimated monetary returns to authors from article publication via the role citations play in determining salaries). Recent studies have begun to show that open access increases impact. More studies and more substantial investigations are needed to confirm the effect, although a simple example demonstrates the effect.

This chronological bibliography is intended to describe progress in reporting these studies; it also lists the Web tools available to measure impact. It is a focused bibliography, on the relationship between impact and access. It does not attempt to cover citation impact, or other related topics such as open access, more generally, although some key papers in these areas are listed as jump-off points for wider study.

Free Online Courses to Be Evaluated for Possible College Credit

Free Online Courses to Be Evaluated for Possible College Credit | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it

While massive open online courses, or MOOCs, are still in their early days, the race has begun to integrate them into traditional colleges — by making them eligible for transfer credits, and by putting them to use in introductory and remedial courses.

 

Students who want to take the free classes for credit would have to pay a fee to take an identity-verified, proctored exam. If the faculty team deems the course worthy of academic credit, students who do well could pay for a transcript to submit to the college of their choice. Colleges are not required to accept those credits, but similar transcripts are already accepted by 2,000 United States colleges and universities for training courses offered by the military or by employers.

As someone who is immersed in MOOCs, Learning Analytics and OER this makes an interesting read. [BTW David K, HEFCE spent money on SCORE as well as JISC/HEA so the truth is somewhere between your figure and Crispin's. I feel that there are some interested open initiatives emerging that may gobeyond bubbles. But the business cases often don't stand up to closer inspection (as yet anyhow). Lots of work still to do.
