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.

Technical Remarks:

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.
