Open Learning Recognition: Taking Open Educational Resources a Step Further - Book publication

Open Learning Recognition: Taking Open Educational Resources a Step Further - Book publication | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it

This book is the fruit of two years of research by 8 European partners, and provides the reader with the foundation for the development of envisaged framework, organised into the four topics: assessment methods; requirements and standards of resources; credentialisation, certification and recognition and inter-institutional collaboration. The third chapter is devoted to different scenarios of open learning in order to obtain in-depth understanding of the OER challenges and bring closer a basis for identifying vital differences among them to better address these challenges.

The OERTest guidelines and the OERTest Learning passport are presented in the following chapter. Thus this part of the publication essentially brings to the fore transparency and portability concepts. The fifth chapter lays out the extent to which the assessment and certification of learning outcomes achieved through OER is feasible for Higher Education Institutions of different profiles. The results are predicated on a feasibility study undertaken amongst five universities. This publication concludes with the possible impacts of the open learning recognition through the university networks that are dealt with in the last chapter.

Cable Green: Reuse, not production, is key to positive MOOC impact

Cable Green: Reuse, not production, is key to positive MOOC impact | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it

The issue in higher education is that the really hard and important problems — the problems that no one has solved yet, the problems that will ultimately destroy us — are problems of reuse, not production. David Wiley nailed this years ago in his reusability paradox.

The New Zealand Education and Science Committee report contains recommendations re, open policies and open licensing:

 

* That it review the intellectual property framework for our education system to resolve copyright issues that have been raised, including considering Creative Commons policy. (p. 26)

 * That it consider the advantages and disadvantages of whether all documentation produced by the Ministry of Education for teaching and learning purposes should be released under a Creative Commons licence. (p. 26)

The Best OER Revise / Remix Ever?

The Best OER Revise / Remix Ever? | Open Education Resources | Scoop.it
In fall of 2011, I took a new approach to the Project Management course I teach each year. I wanted my students to gain hands on experience managing a project, I wanted them to feel the pressure of hitting deliverables, I wanted them to feel the nausea of having things fall through, I wanted them to learn to navigate managing people, and most of all I wanted them to feel the joy of completing a piece of work that blesses people lives. So I asked my students to engage in a very large scale revise / remix project that would benefit them and many others.

We started with Project Management from Simple to Complex, originally written by Russell Darnall and John Preston and originally published under a Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license by Flat World Knowledge. For the last two years now we’ve been revising and remixing away on Project Management for Instructional Designers (PM4ID). Here’s what we’ve done:

Aligned each chapter with the relevant portions of the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) certification exam and the Project Manager Professional (PMP) certification exam, so that you can now use PM4ID to study for these exams,
Removed generic examples like ‘You have to get 13,000 tons of concrete to Singapore by December 1′ and replaced these with examples from the instructional design field,
Shot comprehensive video interviews with three experienced instructional design project managers that include stories and bits of wisdom on each of the book’s chapter topics and compiled text transcripts of each of the videos,
Completed a word-for-word re-editing that improved the readability of the book,
Created text-to-speech audio recordings of each chapter section,
Replaced (c) photos throughout the book with CC licensed photos,
Added a Glossary of key terms,
Updated and modernized the ‘Technology Tools for Project Management’ portion of the book, and
Created an automated process for scraping content from the live PM4ID site and converting the entire book into ePub, Kindle, PDF, and downloadable HTML formats nightly.

If this new textbook isn’t the best OER revise/remix ever, I’d like to know what is! Really. Leave links in the comments below.
