"At the end of April, I had the opportunity to participate in two back-to-back events related to open education: the Open Courseware Consortium (OCWC) annual meeting in Ljubljana andOER14, the United-Kingdom based annual conference on the subject. Together, they provide a good insight into the state of open education in Europe (with one caveat: in both cases, the focus is on higher education – which is particularly obvious with regard to the OCWC, which is a consortium of academic institutions from around the world)."

Billy Meinke: Snapshot of the TAACCCT OER Community Pt.1 | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"

What’s happening inside the world’s largest OER project? What patterns exist among grantee projects in their use and attitudes of OER and proprietary content?

This blog post summarizes initial results of a survey conducted in February and March of 2014, exploring knowledge areas and use patterns of Open Educational Resources (OER)and proprietary educational content among grantees of the U.S. Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance for Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant program. The TAACCCT program is a four-round US$2bn program, with 183 grants issued in the first three rounds, representing workforce readiness and career training programs across all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Central to Creative Commons’ (CC) involvement in this project, the TAACCCT program has mandated that all deliverables be licensed with theCreative Commons Attribution 3.0 unported (CC BY 3.0) license, allowing for the extension, reuse, adaptation, remixing, and sharing of content developed with TAACCCT funding, and is an integral piece of legal and technical infrastructure supporting OER development."

How Open and Free Content will Transform Post-secondary Education | Contact North | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

If current trends continue, we may well see the day quite soon when most, if not all, digital 'content' will be open and free to use for educational purposes. If that trend develops further, and is combined with online learning, there will be major consequences for teaching, learning and, above all, our post-secondary institutions.

M&L webinar: Open licensing of content in Higher Education -  16/5/2014 - 15.00-16:00 CET | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"More and more teachers and educators are starting to share their teaching material as OER and using Creative Commons licenses. People working in the education field feel the need to go beyond the borders of their own institutions and get inspired by material from others or share their own work to a broader public. How about video and photo material or lecture capture recordings, can they be shared easily? What should we keep in mind when we want more openness but do not want to infringe any copyright or Intellectual property rights? And how about the exchange between various countries and laws? We will discuss some of these issues and show examples of good practice on how open licencing & sharing of teaching materials can be done."

"Building a Global Open Education Working Group from Marieke Guy

An interesting discussion took place as part of the day 1 panel session on whether communities are built or just evolve. It’s clear that there is no right and wrong here and there are many subtleties, but the Twitter comments made are noteworthy:

  • Community is like that place in the park where people gather…we can’t build it
  • It not simple to create open communities which are not localised as species often geographically specific
  • I don’t think they just happen, maybe they need to be ‘nurtured’ or ‘fostered’
  • Master plan communities in the states – everything is planned out. And then a wall and gate around it. That’s not a community
  • Do we actually build a community? Communities happen.
  • Discussion of can we build community? Or are we just making links?
  • But when you link communities, aren’t you ‘building’ a new community anyway?
  • Surely people will do what people we do, and we offer resources to help them. We don’t “build” communities.
