7 Things You Should Know About Open Education Content #openaccess #oers

Latest in the EDUCAUSE "7 Things" series is 7 Things You Should Know About Open Education: Content. Just 2 pages long it addresses the questions (those are the "things") 1. What is it? (This starts "Open educational resources (OER) are teaching, learning, and research materials in any medium that reside in the public domain or that have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation, and redistribution by others.") 2 How does it work? 3 Who’s doing it? (Giving examples of repositories and use: I think all the examples are North American) 4 Why is it significant? 5 What are the downsides? 6 Where is it going? 7 What are the implications for teaching and learning?
Obviously this is a simplification of the issues, but very handy if you are introducing people to the concept.
