When the Content Is the Pedagogy

We first experimented with OER in fall 2009, when we developed a three-credit course, IFS101: Research Skills in the Digital Age, that transfers to Arizona state universities and meets their critical literacy (L) general education requirement (IFS courses focus on information skills). We intentionally replaced costly course materials with digital content. As expert searchers, finding open content on the web was not a problem. Yet how, in good conscience, could two faculty librarians ignore the rich scholarship found only in the proprietary databases to which we subscribe, especially when access requires only a simple login to authenticate? The fact is, we didn't need to — we could blend.

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf

Trend Report: open and online education furthers quality and flexibility | Nicolai van der Woert, Ria Jacobi & Hester Jelgerhuis , Surf | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

(From the foreword) The global development towards open education dates back more than ten years. In 2006, several Dutch universities followed suit with the publication of OpenCourseWare. Although several institutions had already embraced the concept of open education for some time, the issue seems to have truly taken hold in the Dutch higher education sector since 2013, largely due to the growing popularity of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs).

The Trend Report supports this conclusion. The report accurately describes the latest developments and challenges facing the Dutch higher education sector in relation to open and online education. The articles also outline a concrete vision on future developments, such as the effects of recognising MOOC results, the impact of digitisation on postgraduate education and other forms of disruptive innovation.

Peter B. Sloep's curator insight, March 11, 5:51 AM

This is the third trend report in a row  that Surf, in which Dutch higher education institutions collaborate on educational innovation with ICTs,  has published. It features contributions by academics and support staff throughout higher education in the Netherlands, thus reflecting the current state of the art. Although the perspective is wider than MOOCed education, the term MOOC features 430 times, at least once on almost all of its 69 pages. It goes to show that in the Netherlands, but likely in Europe as a whole, there is an intimate link between MOOCs and open education. ‘Open’ here means making use of open licenses (such a creative commons licenses), it stands in contrast with ‘open’ in the sense of for free, without cost, which applies to the courses of the large MOOC platforms (see also the EUA report next http://sco.lt/6QxgvZ). 

 

As indicated, all the topics covered in the report refer to MOOCs. To name a few of them:  flexibility and quality, postgraduate education, apps for open education, economics of open education, platforms, recognition of credits, testing and assessment, MOOCs in formal education, learning analytics, student perspectives, privacy and other legal issues. As with the previous trend reports, a useful collection of insights. @pbsloep

Manuel León Urrutia's curator insight, March 24, 9:18 AM

A trend analysis on MOOCs from all perspectives: institutional, educational, business, and technical. Interesting to see the insights of dutch scholars on how MOOCs can offer quality education, how can become sustainable business models. Of special interest is the second article about the potential of MOOCs to change education economics, supported with figures.

Reclaim Open Learning

Reclaim Open Learning | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Open like the web.  Learning by everyone. For everyone.Reclaim Open Learning brings together innovators who are building the future of higher ed.

The internet is an amazing place for learning. But recent high-profile forays into online learning for higher education seem to replicate a traditional lecture-based, course-based model of campus instruction, instead of embracing the peer-to-peer connected nature of the web. The networked and digital world offers an unprecedented wealth of resources for engaged, interest-driven, lifelong learning. Reclaim Open Learning intervenes in this debate by supporting and showcasing innovation that brings together the best of truly open, online and networked learning in the wilds of the Internet, with the expertise represented by institutions of higher education.

Reclaim Open Learning is a collaboration between the Digital Media and Learning Research Hub at UC Irvine and the MIT Media Lab. The thematic initiative is supported by the MacArthur Foundation.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, December 3, 2013 5:37 PM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 Docubase is a project of the MIT Open Documentary Lab that aims to create a collaborative, participatory community around a growing collection of innovative documentaries curated by experts and outsiders alike.

 

Documentaries can be searched and sorted easily in a number of ways (most recent, most viewed, alphabetical order / or as a list rather than a mosaic). The interface is slick, colorful and simple to use.

 

More than 140 documentaries are already available and a selected group of curators has put together a number of publicly available playlists designed aroound key themes connecting these clips. 

 

Playlists: http://docubase.upian.com/playlist/ 

 

The curators: http://docubase.upian.com/curator/ 

 

A fantastic resource for documentary lovers and a great example of how in an open and participatory project, curation can play a fundamental role.

 

Free to use.

Why invest lots of time, effort and energy creating new course materials from scratch when quality, freely-available resources may already exist? Why not adapt and use these resources, known as Open Educational Resources (OERs)?

 

Dr. Rory McGreal , Contact North | Contact Nord Research Associate and the UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning Chair in Open Educational Resources shares his expertise in a series of 10 short, informative videos that address the what, why, where, and how of OERs. Through the videos, Rory guides you to effectively find and make use of OERs for more time- and cost-effective course development.

Oppia - Home

Oppia is a tool for creating interactive online activities that enable students to learn by doing. Its creators believe that this is often a more effective and efficient way of learning than either watching videos or reading texts, since it allows the student to engage more deeply with the activity in a way that videos or books often do not.

 

Oppia aims to simulate the one-on-one interaction that a student has with a teacher by capturing and generalizing “interaction dialogues.” For instance, a teacher might ask the student a question, and the student then responds in some way -- by either volunteering an answer, or saying that he/she is stuck. The teacher then responds in a way that is as helpful to the student as possible. However, the teacher will often not have time to address every individual misconception. Furthermore, it usually takes significant effort to figure out an appropriate response that helps a student get unstuck without denying them the experience of working through the problem and coming to terms with their misunderstanding. In many cases this effort will have already been expended by another teacher in a different school who is faced with the same question. If teachers use Oppia to record such interactions, they can share their knowledge with more students without duplicating effort.

 

We hope that having some of the student’s work addressed automatically will lighten the teacher’s load and help them focus on the questions that require a human’s response, as well as provide quick feedback to the student that would make the learning experience more enjoyable. Over time, as Oppia becomes able to address more misconceptions and understand more varied student inputs, we hope that it will become an increasingly useful and valuable resource for students and teachers worldwide.

Building peaceful, democratic and inclusive knowledge societies across the world is at the heart of UNESCO’s mandate. To make global knowledge societies possible, universal access to information is a fundamental condition.

 

Open Access means free access to scientific information and unrestricted use of electronic data for everyone. With Open Access, expensive prices and copyrights will no longer be obstacles to the dissemination of knowledge. Everyone is free to add information, modify contents, translate texts into other languages, and disseminate an entire electronic publication.

 

For UNESCO, adopting an Open Access Policy means to make thousands of its publications freely available to the public. Furthermore, Open Access is also a way to provide the public with an insight into the work of the Organization so that everyone is able to discover and share what UNESCO is doing.
