Kitaboo on EdTech

Students can access more than 20,000 course materials— courseware, eBooks, online homework and study tools, across more than 70 disciplines and 675 courses. If educational institutes start adopting OERs in classrooms, students will be able to save a lot of money that would otherwise be spent on purchasing textbooks and rental subscriptions. Although rentals are a good option approved by educational institutes, OER is yet to be widely accepted by educational institutes.

Why Open Content is Not Yet Adopted in the Workplace

Kapp Notes

One of the best known is MIT's Open Courseware project. A quick definition from the article: The term "open educational resources" was first adopted at UNESCO's 2002 Forum on the Impact of Open Courseware for Higher Education in Developing Countries funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. UNESCO helped to define OER as educational materials and resources "offered freely and openly for anyone to use and under some licenses to re-mix, improve and redistribute."

One of my Top 10 eLearning Predictions for 2010 was around Open Content for Workplace Learning: I’m not sure why this already hasn’t had a bigger impact, but workplace learning is going to start to catch up on the value of OCW and OER. Just visit the OER Commons and Open Courseware Consortium.

Can US Higher Education Publishers Leverage a Subscription Model

Kitaboo on EdTech

Big publishing houses like McGraw Hill, Cengage and McMillan realized the value of digital publishing and started leveraging it to provide relevant courseware to learners and also to keep their revenue stream running. But how do they compete with resources like MOOCs and OERs that have made high quality course content from respected university professors available for free?

The Big Question: how can we leverage open content in workplace learning?

Clive on Learning

The March Big Question on the Learning Circuits Blog asks why it is that open content initiatives such as the OER Commons and the Open Courseware Consortium haven't had a bigger impact. I have some suggestions: There is no history or culture of content sharing in workplace learning and development. Most l&d departments operate in glorious isolation and would probably never consider engaging with their peers to share learning content.
