Audrey Watters - Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Battle to Open Textbooks

Audrey Watters - Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Battle to Open Textbooks | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"When I looked at the most significant trends in educational technology last year, I opted to write about the “Digital Library” in lieu of digital textbooks. And truth be told, it would be quite easy for me to make the same argument again in 2012: despite all the hype about “revolutionizing” the textbook, faculty and students are still slow to adopt digital versions. (Not to mention, sorry, but textbooks, yuck.)"

Audrey Watters: What Do We Mean By "Open"?

Audrey Watters: What Do We Mean By "Open"? | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"The adjective “open” ostensibly makes educational resources more easily accessible. But “open” can mean a lot of things: resources that are free; research that is publicly available on the Web and indexed by search engines; courses that offer open enrollment; materials that are openly licensed; content and code that can be copied and modified and redistributed. “Open” can mean “transparent.” Open versus proprietary. Open versus closed."

Audrey Watters: OER Usage (A Survey) | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

"Below is a survey I’ve created that asks some questions in the hopes of getting to the heart of this question: why or why not do you use OER? There are other questions too, particularly geared towards finding out how OER are used and if they’re remixed (and again, why or why not)."

Audrey Watters: OER Use, Reuse and Remixing

Audrey Watters: OER Use, Reuse and Remixing | Open Educational Resources (OER) | Scoop.it

I’m starting a new research and writing project today that examines the current state of open educational resources.

 

My interest isn’t simply identifying where the repositories of OER lie or what they contain. Nor am I just looking at adoption or usage (although yes, the research will address all these things.) See, I’m particularly keen to investigate the formats that these openly licensed materials are in, and by an extension whether they’re being remixed.
