Open Education Week

What have you been up to for Open Education Week?  Or even “What is Open Education”?

Open Educational Resources, or OER, are free, openly licensed resources that anyone can use to learn for free.  The vast majority of the time you can also “rip, remix and burn” them – in other words, pull them down from online, make changes,and republish them with citation.  OER is in alignment with the mission of access of community colleges, and its use is expanding geometrically within the field!

Are you on Twitter?  A Twitter event has been going on for OER, a non-stop, 24 hour online discussion! Use #AllAboutOpen to check it out:) #OpenEducationWk
