Instructional Technology Institute, Utah State University, Logan, Utah, Keynote, Sept 04, 2004.

Cornerstone talk for me in which I define the difference between open and closed, outline the key elements of open learning and open learning resources, and list the barriers to the use of these posed by commercial media, such as lock-out, lock-in, high-bar, flooding, and legal barriers. I also talk about the way we as an industry are complying with the institution of these barriers and steps we need to take to circumvent them.
