Downes-Wiley: A Conversation on Open Educational Resources

Stephen Downes, David Wiley, Stephen's Web, Dec 31, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have posted the raw transcript of my conversation on open education with David Wiley last August. The conversation was set in an old courthouse and lasting for a full day prior to the Open Education conference in Vancouver. Wiley and I covered many of the issues that have concerned us over the years: what are open educational resources, licensing issues, accreditation and commercialism, and the future of OERs. This is the edited raw transcript, available as a 105 page PDF, MS-Word or plain text document. A more polished book version will appear at a future date. For those who like to listen while they read, the audio recordings are available here.
