UoPeople: A University Based on OER

University of the People (UoPeople) - a non-profit, tuition-free, online academic institution – aims at building a model capable of opening access to higher education for those currently constrained due to financial, geographic or societal restraints.  By amalgamating Open Educational Resources, open source technology, peer-to-peer learning and the goodwill of qualified volunteers, UoPeople is able to provide the opportunity of higher education for deprived individuals.  Additionally, UoPeople’s model is capable of impacting higher education globally as parts of this model are adopted or replicated within universities and governments – thus scaling down the overall cost of higher education.

An introduction to Open Education (OE) and its potential for modernizing traditional formal education

Watch the workshop Introduction Note by Brendan Barrett & Andreas Meiszner:http://youtu.be/iKNMdKT3h6I
This virtual workshop asks what is holding back Open Education (OE) and looks into mainstreaming strategies at institutional level, from best practice to lessons learnt. The objective of the workshop is to reflect on possible solutions and strategies that can help to mainstream OE at an institutional level; including existing best practices and key lessons learnt. As a discussion base the workshop organizers will provide some baseline information outlining what OE is understood to be and on key definitions and aspects of OE.Running from 5-10 March 2012, the workshop will be run virtually via https://unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1 and consists of synchronous and asynchronous ‘question and answer’ and ‘collaborative development’ sessions. There will be one 1h synchronous chat (via etherpad) per day moderated by the workshop team, which can be followed by asynchronous discussions. By the end of the week the ‘etherpad’ workspace should then provide an overview about the identified main barriers to be overcome, possible solutions and strategies to mainstream Open Education.

Join us online for an etherpad discussion: https://unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1

Session 1

Session Focus: An introduction to Open Education (OE) and its potential for modernizing traditional formal educationSession Time: 16.00 to 17.00 GMT/UTC (Time Zone info:http://bit.ly/Abxxl6) Session Baseline information:http://slidesha.re/y0l4Sv Session (co-)hosts: Andreas Meiszner (UNU-MERIT, NL),

Who should participate? Anyone with a critical and constructive mindset who is interested to reflect on how recent OE initiatives such as MITx (http://bit.ly/zw99sy) could impact traditional formal education

.What will I be asked to do? The objective of this first session is to explore the potential that OE withholds for modernizing traditional formal education. We like to identify existing or perceived barriers towards mainstreaming OE.

What can I expect from this session? A better understanding of what OE could potentially be – beyond the ‘OER dimension’.

"Comuversidad": educación entre comunidades abiertas e instituciones formales - WEBINAR

Esta charla hablará sobre las transformaciones en los sistemas educativos a partir de los posibles puentes entre las formas de aprendizaje de las comunidades abiertas y poco jerárquicas y los métodos institucionalizados más tradicionales, cerrados y jerárquicos, así como las infraestructuras que podrían soportar dichos diálogos entre los dos sistemas. En ella haremos una revisión de experiencias educativas prácticas de cerca de 10 años desde las concepciones del Sur Global, así como de los elementos teóricos que explican dichas experiencias.

Enabling universal access to higher education via openness and collaboration, session 1

The UN has noted that there are approximately 100 million adults in the world, mostly in developing countries, who are eligible to enter higher education, but cannot afford the enrolment fees. As part of our contribution to Open Education Week (5-9 March), we are hostng a series of three Webinars entitled “Enabling universal access to higher education via openness and collaboration?” at the University of Leicester. Speakers will exchange ideas on how the emerging culture of open access, combined with the existence of new collaborative partnerships such as the OERu (Open Educational Resources university), OERtest and others, might enable access to higher education – and accreditation - on a massive scale that would previously have been unthinkable. Initiatives such as the OERu are actively piloting new models for the sharing of resources and expertise in higher education, to enhance the quality of their existing provision and address needs beyond the boundaries of their traditional constituencies.

What does Open Education mean in practice?


We will discuss what Open Education might mean in terms of policy and practice within an institution and
launch a new UCL Open Education project, Sustainable Texts and Disciplinary Conversations (http://www.sustainabletexts.wordpress.com).

We hope to consider questions such as:
• Should all students in an institution have access to all VLE courses, in the name of openness?
• How might OERs feature in external engagement work?
• Can open resources foster links with the communities  beyond the university walls?
• How can OERs help promote an institution’s work?

Please join us if you can. Joining instructions to follow.

Developing and supporting the curriculum with open educational resources

This interactive workshop will develop your knowledge of how open educational resources can be used to develop and support the curriculum. It will consider the benefits of 'giving away learning for free', offer an insight into what makes a valuable open educational resource and what issues need to be considered.
The session will be run by Kate Signorini from The Open University in Scotland and Jonathan Darby, Director, SCORE (the Support Centre for Open resources in Education). It is one of many events being held around the world as part of Open Education Week 5-10 March 2012.
We will look at the opportunities that open educational resources can offer:
* Flexible delivery of curriculum
* Bridging informal and formal learning
* Positive impact on recruitment, preparation and progression
* Reducing course production costs

Лицензии Creative Commons

Лицензии Сreative Commons являются правовым инструментом и созданы для управления исключительными правами на объекты интеллектуальной собственности, а именно, объекты авторского права и смежных прав. За исключением СС0, лицензии СС не подразумевают отказ от прав, а наоборот имеют в качестве своей правовой основы закрепление и признание за авторами и иными правообладателями исключительных прав, которыми они вправе распоряжаться по-своему усмотрению.

Данный вебинаро будет посвящен рассмотрению правовых вопросов, касающихся использования лицензий Creative Commons. Для начала мы остановимся на основных принципах и положениях, на которых строится система охраны авторских и смежных прав и какое место в ней занимают лицензии Creative Commons, какова их роль в расширении возможностей предоставления доступа к информации (образовательным ресурсам). Затем мы подробно остановимся на содержании правовых инструментов,  предлагаемых правообладателям организацией Creative Commons, рассмотрим основные положения международных лицензий  Creative Commons, определяющие права и обязанности правооблодателя и пользователя.

MIT Open Scholar Courses - WEBINAR

Starting in January 2011, MIT OpenCourseWare began publishing a unique set of new courses, dubbed OCW Scholar courses, which are designed specifically to meet the needs of our independent learner audience.  Whereas our traditional publication simply presents course materials as used in MIT classrooms, OCW Scholar courses contain materials specifically designed for independent online learning.   MIT faculty, staff and students work closely with the OCW team to structure OCW Scholar courses, and these courses offer substantially complete materials, including new custom-created content, and are structured in logical sequences to facilitate independent learning.  This webinar will provide an overview of these innovative resources.

Tools that help you find, create and re-use Open Educational Resources - WEBINAR

This webinar will provide an overview of three tools that support discovery, creation and re-use of OER

The tools are:                        

1. The Xpert Search engine:

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert

Xpert helps people to find OER. It provides access to over 260,000 open resources making it one of the largest collections of OER in the world.

2. The Xpert Attribution tool:

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xpert/attribution

The Xpert Attribution tool helps users to find creative commons or public domain media and automatically incorporate licence information into the resource. Routinely embedding open licences simplifies OER development, removes barriers to repurposing and publishing OER, and substantially increases the usability and accessibility of course materials.

Video overview at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIKRXptlzLY

3. Xerte On-line Toolkits:

http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/xerte

Xerte is a server-based suite of tools for content authors. E-learning materials can be authored quickly and easily using browser-based tools, with no programming required. Xerte Online Toolkits is aimed at non-technical content authors, who will assemble content using simple wizards. Xerte also provides a quick and easy way of publishing content to the web. It allows users to specify which creative commons licence they want to release the content under, and gives the option for users to add the content into RSS feeds, including one that surfaces the resource in Xpert.

Democratizing Access to Knowlege: Find out what open educational resources have to offer

Educators have taken advantage of the Internet to share their resources with colleagues around the world.  There is now an increasing amount of free online resources to support open education.  OpenStax College, for example, will soon offer free peer-reviewed textbooks on different subjects. 

Why do educators embrace open education?  What are open educational resources (OER) and where are they located?  How could instructors at Western benefit from the abundance of OER?

Michael McNally, a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Information & Media Studies, will introduce the audience to open education and facilitate discussion of how OER can be integrated into teaching and learning.

Neuroscience, Learning and the Future of Open Education - WEBINAR

Modern neuroscience research has transformed the way we think about learning. Rejecting the myth of the “average” learner, this new perspective emphasizes the importance of learning variability and the powerful role that context plays in shaping learning outcomes. This webinar will discuss what brain research tells us about learning variability, and what this means for the future of open education within the context of Universal Design for Learning.

Open Educational Resources and Online Learning

It's Open Education Week and #IOLchat is participating with a discussion of how open educational resources (OER) can support college-level learning in both formal and informal ways. By definition OERs are "instructional materials that are freely available for use, reuse, remixing, adapting, and sharing" and can range from "stand-alone resources…to larger instructional modules or full courses. Students in academic courses may use OER to supplement their course materials. Instructors and curriculum developers may incorporate OER in their online courses. And lifelong learners may engage in OER on their own. Join our discussion of the benefits and challenges associated with open, online educational resources.  

 

Q1) What is the appeal of using open educational resources?

Q2) What barriers exist in implementing open education resources? 

Q3) How can we know the quality level of open educational resources?

Q4) What would motivate you to share something you created in an open, online format?

Q5) What are your recommendations for someone just getting started with open educational resources? 


This blog post gives an overview of events and activities our readers may be interested in exploring: http://www.onlinecollege.org/2012/03/01/get-ready-for-open-education-week/

The video's dead. Long live video! ...the educational one - WEBINAR

"Knowledge has been digitized, it's a fact and we can see it everywhere. Actually education as such has been digitized. So how can we optimally transform the live experience into the virtual, online one? Do you imagine watching your favorite professor online, decades after your graduation? How's that possible in the case of video in education? 
As the amount of videos on all possible media and channels is enormous and diverse, with usually no additional value, other than the video itself, we will try to use our imagination in this webinar and connect video with the state of the art knowledge technologies and try to speculate and describe what would be the future scenario for online educational videos. 
We will take our initial stand point from VideoLectures.NET, a well structured and organized free and open access educational video lectures repository. At the website lectures are given by distinguished scholars and scientists at events like conferences, summer schools, workshops and science promotional events from many fields of Science. "

Obviousness of Open Policy - WEBINAR

The Internet, increasingly affordable computing, open licensing, open access journals and open educational resources provide the foundation for a world in which a quality education can be a basic human right. Yet before we break the "iron triangle" of access, cost and quality with new models, we need to educate policy makers about the obviousness of open policy: public access to publicly funded resources.

Sustaining Open Education Practice (OEP) and the development of Open Educational Resources (OER) is an important step in ensuring that informal and formal learning is able to flourish in a changing landscape of higher education provision everywhere. 

Understanding what drives people to engage in OER will enable you to engage in strategic discussions at a number of different levels within your institution.  This workshop will consider how OER and OEP are impacting on Higher Education, why this is beneficial to learners, lecturers and institutions and what can be done to build on the movement.

Separate or Together? Open research and open education

We tend to treat open education and open research as if they are completely separate issues, just as our universities tend to separate the different missions of the institutions, although these missions are delivered by the same people. This seminar will explore the shared agendas of research communication and learning materials development in what has become an increasingly collaborative, multidisciplinary and open online research environment. Could openness become the space in which these two changing environments converge, to the benefit of the effectiveness and relevance and impact of all three of the university missions?

Eve Gray is an Honorary Research Associate in the Centre for Education Technology and is currently the Programme Lead of the IDRC-funded Scholarly Communications Programme. She is recognized as an international expert on Open Access to research from a developing country perspective.

Publish Your Course as an OER - WEBINAR

A common barrier to participating in the exchange of Open Educational Resources (OER) is access to technology to facilitate resource sharing. CourseSites by Blackboard has removed that barrier by providing a no-cost course authoring option with the ability to publish a course as an OER in Common Cartridge format with a CC-BY license. Learn how to share your own course and let us know what else might make sharing easier and better for your and your colleagues.

Sustainability Models for Open Education

Watch the workshop Introduction Note by Brendan Barrett & Andreas Meiszner:http://youtu.be/iKNMdKT3h6I
This virtual workshop asks what is holding back Open Education (OE) and looks into mainstreaming strategies at institutional level, from best practice to lessons learnt. The objective of the workshop is to reflect on possible solutions and strategies that can help to mainstream OE at an institutional level; including existing best practices and key lessons learnt. As a discussion base the workshop organizers will provide some baseline information outlining what OE is understood to be and on key definitions and aspects of OE.Running from 5-10 March 2012, the workshop will be run virtually via https://unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1 and consists of synchronous and asynchronous ‘question and answer’ and ‘collaborative development’ sessions. There will be one 1h synchronous chat (via etherpad) per day moderated by the workshop team, which can be followed by asynchronous discussions. By the end of the week the ‘etherpad’ workspace should then provide an overview about the identified main barriers to be overcome, possible solutions and strategies to mainstream Open Education.

Join us online for an etherpad discussion: unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1

 Focus: Sustainability models for Open EducationSession

Time: 14:00 to 15:00 GMT/UTC  (Time Zone info:http://bit.ly/Abxxl6) 

Session Baseline information: an overview of experiences on building sustainable Open Education experiences, showing both success and failure cases (material in preparation).Session (co-)hosts: Free Knowledge Institute, Who should participate? Anyone working in an Open Education experience (or planning to start one) with an interest in future sustainability.

What will I be asked to do? Participants will be encouraged to share their stories, both positive and negative, in the development and deployment of Open Courseware, Open Educational Resources and other related experiences. From there we will discuss novel approaches to this issue and suggest ways to implement them in existing or new projects.

What can I expect from this session? You will gain a better understanding of the advantages and pitfalls of different existing sustainability schemes. We will also try to come up with new approaches to the problem and ways to implement them.

Wikipedia for Schools in Offline formats

Wikipedia is the largest open education resource in the world, yet right now the obvious barrier to entry is the need for an Internet connection. The goal of the Wikimedia movement at large is to make knowledge freely available to all of humanity; currently, however, the content knowledge to less than 33% of the world. In order to achieve the greatest scale of impact possible, Wikimedia is intentionally focusing on the largest demographic segment of the world in order to address the steadily increasing digital divide. The offline work is geared to expand the reach of the collective knowledge and broaden participation in the project particularly focusing on bringing access to the information to secondary schools.

The LON-CAPA Resource Sharing Network

LON-CAPA is an open-source freeware learning content management and assessment system. It links over 160 schools, departments, colleges, and universities, which share over 440,000 learning objects (including 200,000 assessment resources) with each other. Its architecture provides an end-to-end solution from cross-institutional managing, versioning and cataloging content to its deployment and course management. We will discuss experiences regarding resource sharing between courses and institutions, as well as provide an outlook how this architecture can be expanded to provide a platform for open courseware content.

Creating courseware using SoftChalk and Open Educational Resources - WEBINAR

Creating Courseware using SoftChalk and Open Educational Resources   This presentation will highlight how two educators used SoftChalk to transform traditional flat texts into engaging, interactive OER course materials.  As a key component of the Reading Curriculum Team for the Kaleidoscope Grant (http://www.project-kaleidoscope.org/), Jacqui Cain developed an interactive reader using SoftChalk to adapt "The Hound of the Baskervilles" for use in lower-level basic skills courses. Ms. Cain will explain the collaboration process and creation of the materials, demonstrate the reader, discuss the next phases of this project and briefly review two OER projects currently in development.  Malissa Attebery from Lone Star College created a World War II ecourse using the OER textbook written by Henry Jud Sage, a Virginia Community College faculty member. His original etextbook is located in the College Open Textbooks repository (http://www.collegeopentextbooks.org). Using SoftChalk, this flat text was made interactive and portable to multiple web-based learning environments, enabling the learner to see, hear, and further explore the content.

Wrap up of UNU workshop

Watch the workshop Introduction Note by Brendan Barrett & Andreas Meiszner:http://youtu.be/iKNMdKT3h6I
This virtual workshop asks what is holding back Open Education (OE) and looks into mainstreaming strategies at institutional level, from best practice to lessons learnt. The objective of the workshop is to reflect on possible solutions and strategies that can help to mainstream OE at an institutional level; including existing best practices and key lessons learnt. As a discussion base the workshop organizers will provide some baseline information outlining what OE is understood to be and on key definitions and aspects of OE.Running from 5-10 March 2012, the workshop will be run virtually via https://unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1 and consists of synchronous and asynchronous ‘question and answer’ and ‘collaborative development’ sessions. There will be one 1h synchronous chat (via etherpad) per day moderated by the workshop team, which can be followed by asynchronous discussions. By the end of the week the ‘etherpad’ workspace should then provide an overview about the identified main barriers to be overcome, possible solutions and strategies to mainstream Open Education.

Join us online for an etherpad discussion: unu.etherpad.mozilla.org/1
