OER for Assessment and Credit for Students

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I'm liking this; if successful, such an initiative could redefine higher education: "Through our community service mission we will open pathways for OER learners to earn formal academic credit and pay reduced fees for assessment and credit. In this way the OER movement can contribute to addressing the global demand for higher education where traditional delivery models are unable to respond to the need for post-secondary education." Such an approach becomes even more powerful if combined with an open learning system such as is being pioneered with our Connectivism courses. #OERU
