Open Questions on Open Courseware

Eric Jansson, Inside Higher Ed, Jul 08, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

With funding pressures - and closures - impacting traditional sources of open education resources (OERs), questions are being raised about best practices and models of sustainability for open learning. Readers here will know of my own view, which involves community-based authoring and sharing. This column by Eric Jansson, an affiliated fellow with the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), represents another view:
- First, there is the obvious integration of interactivity and media.
- Second, the building blocks of curriculum are evolving as new delivery methods (adaptive learning systems, new portable computing devices and robust network infrastructures are creating new contexts for learning, and these will affect the design) become available.
