The battle for open - a perspective

Martin Weller, Jan Dlugosz University, Dec 08, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Open Access (OA) and Open Educational Resources (OERs) have won the day. writes Martin Weller, but after the victory comes the battle. "After the initial success of openness as a general ethos then the question becomes not 'do you want to be open?' but rather 'what type of openness do you want?' Determining the nature of openness in a range of contexts so that it retains its key benefits as an approach is the next major focus for the open education movement." 14 page PDF. Good read. See in addition a dozen or so more articles from this special issue of JIME on openness.
