Tom's Two Cents

Looking back at Open Ed 2010, looking forward to 2011

Looking back at Open Ed 2010, looking forward to 2011

Today I reviewed some presentations from Open Ed 2010 and thought about the last several years of the Open Education movement. Here are a couple clips from the Barcelona conference, starting with a nice overview from my favorite OER advocate, Hal Plotkin:


Hal Plotkin: impressions about Open Ed 2010

Hal Plotkin at Open Ed 2010:
“Meeting President Obama’s 2020 College Graduation Goal – The Role of Open Educational Resources”

And in case you missed Hal Plotkin’s “new speech” from his 2011 Connexions conference keynote, it’s a must.

Brandon Muramatsu and Tom Caswell at Open Ed 2010:
“Plagiarism is Good: Moving from Access to Use as Metrics for OCW/OER Use and Reuse”


Tom Caswell at Open Ed 2010:
“TwHistory: Sharing History Using Twitter”

MIT OCW just released a great timeline of the first decade of the OpenCourseWare movement, and you can even relive the major milestones on Twitter via @10yearsOCW. For anyone wanting to get involved with Open Education, now is a great time. Here are two conferences you should seriously consider attending:

OpenCourseWare Consortium Global 2011: Celebrating 10 years of OpenCourseWare – May 4-6, 2011 in Cambridge, Mass.

Open Education 2011 Conference – October 25-27, 2011 in Park City, Utah.
