Discussion for Opening Up Education: The Collective Advancement of Education through Open Technology, Open Content, and Open Knowledge
Kelvin Thompson (Faculty)
I've used this as a supplemental text in a graduate course on the topic of distance education. While my primary text addressed history and theories associated with distance education, selected chapters from "Opening Up Education" provided a counterpoint to traditional distance education by introducing various concepts from the open educational resources movement.
Chapters are available as individual pdfs or in one large pdf. These files may be linked to, or they may be downloaded and "remixed" under a Creative Commons license. While I provide a link to Adobe Acrobat reader, I've never had any students report difficulty in accessing these materials.
