Opening Up Education The Collective Advancement of Education Through Open Technology, Open Content, and Open Knowledge

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Couldn't have said this better myself: "Given the abundance of open education initiatives that aim to make educational assets freely available online, the time seems ripe to explore the potential of open education to transform the economics and ecology of education." Thus we are introduced to this substantial volume edited by Toru Iiyoshi and M. S. Vijay Kumar on the subject of open education. It will take some time to digest the contents. There are many many articles here from some of the leading proponents of online learning and education. While daunted by the amount of reading I now face (it has been quite the busy week) I am nonetheless heartened by such a show of support for open technology, open content and open knowledge.
