Peer Production and Co-Production: A New Approach to Solving Common Problems Together - College Open Textbooks Community

Peer Production and Co-Production: A New Approach to Solving Common Problems Together - College Open Textbooks Community | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Aalto University in Finland has a new publication, "Towards Peer Production in Public Services: Cases from Finland" available for free download.

 

KF:  An interesting book available under a reasonably new "copyfarleft" licensing arrangement.  The book provides some useful insights into openness and peer/collaborative production strategies.  It brings to mind the Cachalot (http://itunes.apple.com/au/app/cachalot/id458866319?mt=8) book from Duke University where expertise is crowd-sourced, peer review is managed and distribution is open-source.  These new models of content creation and distribution are set to challenge the established (dis)order of publishing and distribution.  Thanks to Yves Simon for the suggestion.
