Open Education

An emerging open education movement in higher education and beyond is now transforming the landscape. By making educational assets free, open and accessible, the movement is beginning to radically change the ecology and economics of education. This can be seen in the upsurge of publicly shared course websites and lecture videos from colleges and universities. Institutions have also formed consortia to co-develop open-source educational technologies, creating new models of collaboration for the production and distribution of educational resources.
