DIY U at Educause

Anya Kamenetz, DIY-U, Oct 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Anya Kamenetz says some good things at the Educause conference along the lines of "the word 'open' does not mean what you seem to think it means." As she notes, "Pearson is launching something called OpenClass... Blackboard announced that it’s becoming Open-Educational-Resource-friendly... Cable Green from Creative Commons asked what I thought about this in the Q&A, and I brought up David Wiley’s concept of 'openwashing.'" Yes, good points. If she keeps up like that, though, the publishers will never let her publish another book.
