Knowledge, Learning, Community
David Wiley's game-style course on open education has started, and students in the open course are doing the first 'quest' - to read about, and summarize, some documents on the history of open education (I confess, how this 'quest' resembles a game, and not, say, some course assignment, is something that completely escapes me). The responses make for interesting reading. Jared Stein offers this post as well as background info on open education. Dan Coleman describes learning ancient history for free (this might not be part of the course, but it's a good related post). Sara Joy Pond offers a vivid and colorful account of the history of OERs. Michael Feldstein links to the sources and offers a brief survey.
