10 Open Education Resources You May Not Know About (But Should) Digital Tools Horla Varlan This week, the OCW Consortium is holding its annual meeting, celebrating 10 years of OpenCourseWare.

10 Open Education Resources You May Not Know About (But Should)

The movement to make university-level content freely and openly available online began a decade ago, when the faculty at MIT agreed to put the materials from all 2,000 of the university’s courses on the Web. With that gesture, MIT OpenCourseWare helped launch an important educational movement, one that MIT President Susan Hockfield described in her opening remarks at yesterday’s meeting as both the child of technology and of a far more ancient academic tradition: “the tradition of the global intellectual commons.” We have looked here before at how OCW has shaped education in the last ten years, but in many ways much of the content that has been posted online remains very much “Web 1.0.”

But as open educational resources and OCW increase in popularity and usage, there are a number of new resources out there that do offer just that. Related. Open Content. Unter dem Schlagwort "Open Content" bietet die TU Graz nicht nur Studierenden und Lehrenden die Möglichkeit des freien Zugangs und der Verbreitung von Bildungsinhalten - so genannte Open Educational Resources (OER) -, sondern auch allen anderen daran Interessierten. Der freie Zugang zu Lehrinhalten für Jedermann ist eine Öffnung der Bildung und Abkehr vom vielmals vorgeworfenen Elfenbeinturm des tertiären Bildungssektors.

Die vorangeschrittene Digitalisierung der Lehre erlaubt neue Herangehensweisen unter Verwendung des Web 2.0. Nachhaltige Nutzung und Entwicklung von neuen, innovativen Inhalten findet im Kontext einer Vernetzung verschiedener Disziplinen statt. In diesem Sinne bietet der Open Content Gedanke einen unterstützenden Zugang zum kollaborativen Lehren und Lernen und erlaubt eine detailiertere Unterschutzstellung geistigen Eigentums unter Verwendung der international angesehenen Creative Commons Lizensierung.

The MIT Program in Writing and Humanistic Studies gives students the opportunity to learn the techniques, forms, and traditions of several kinds of writing, from basic expository prose to more advanced forms of non-fictional prose, fiction and poetry, science writing, scientific and technical communication and digital media. Our faculty consists of novelists, essayists, poets, translators, biographers, historians, engineers, and scientists. Program subjects are arranged by four areas: exposition and rhetoric, creative writing, science writing, and technical communication. In each area, introductory subjects lead to more specialized advanced subjects. The Graduate Program in Science Writing is a 12-month course of study leading to a Master of Science degree.
