Thoughts on open learning

In this topic on “open learning- sharing and openness”, we mulled over what openness means to us, how we hope to try our hands on creating open educational resources.

  1. Expected and unexpected effects with sharing – good or bad?
  2. How open is ‘open education’ and are there ‘unintended visitors’?
  3. Openness for all
  4. Openness: In practice or content?
  5. Sharing and Openness in learning
  6. Sharing my knowledge

Starting an Open Course

Using a popplet, this flowchart provides what one should consider before starting an open online course. This will be useful for anyone who is

  • deciding to setup an independent open course that primarily uses free open tools
  • setting up an entire course by using creative commons licenses, so it can be openly shared, used and improved by others.
