Reflections on 20 Years of Open Content: Lessons from Open Source – guest post by David Wiley

Reflections on 20 Years of Open Content: Lessons from Open Source – guest post by David Wiley | Issues in HE | Scoop.it
2018 marks the 20th anniversary of open content. I’ll be writing a range of essays this year reflecting on two decades of work toward opening the core intellectual infrastructure of education (textbooks and other educational materials, assessments, and outcomes / objectives / competency statements) in order to increase access to and improve the effectiveness of education. This post, written as part of my agreement to keynote #OER18 later this spring, provides some historical context for the emergence of open content.

I don’t make any claim to objectivity here – this history is written wholly from my personal point of view. You may have seen it differently. That is the nature of history.
