Janssen, J. et al. - Learning paths and OER: trends and opportunities

Janssen, J. et al. - Learning paths and OER: trends and opportunities | Designing Engaging Education Content | Scoop.it

This article explains a set of tools developed in order to describe learning activities and learning paths transparently, so that it becomes easier to determine whether they are aligned with the desired learning objectives and are interchangeable (or have interchangeable components). A learning path is defined as a set of one or more learning activities aimed at achieving certain learning objectives. Our argument will make clear that the challenge we face extends beyond the integration of OER within existing curricula, and that we need to view OER as a single source for learning and personal development, alongside many other non-formal and informal sources for learning (CEC, 2000).

Ten Years Later: Why Open Educational Resources Have Not Noticeably Affected Higher Education, and Why We Should Care

Ten Years Later: Why Open Educational Resources Have Not Noticeably Affected Higher Education, and Why We Should Care | Designing Engaging Education Content | Scoop.it
EDUCAUSE Review Online

 

Open educational resources made a dramatic appearance with the 2002 debut of MIT's Open Courseware initiative. In the roughly 10 years since, OERs have not noticeably disrupted the traditional business model of higher education or affected daily teaching approaches at most institutions.

Open Educational Resources (OER) (including open textbooks), Open Access, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) have all gained traction as significant drivers of education innovation.
