Timothy Vollmer: Keeping MOOCs Open

Timothy Vollmer: Keeping MOOCs Open | SocialMediaDesign | Scoop.it

"The new cohort of MOOCs are distinct from the original MOOCs in that they are “open,” thus far, in only one respect: they are open enrollment. The new MOOCs have not yet openly licensed their courses. As MOOCs continue to develop course content and experiment with various business models, we think it’s crucial that they consider adopting open licenses as a default on their digital education offerings.

... Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators. MOOCs — or Massive Open Online Courses — have been getting a lot of attention lately." from the source Creative Commons. 

 

Note: This presents a clear case that internet users need to be aware of the resources they want to use. There is open in all ways and then there is open where only certain features are open and free. Caveat Emptor.
