Carnegie helped build 3000 public libraries

"opening up education"

Toru Iiyoshi

teaching and learning commons

Diana Laurillard

software and tools

teachers need to act as researchers, requires support, london pedagogy planner,, supports learning design decision making, build on work of others,,, means to experiment and reflect,, debate with peers

CSCL to enable teachers to "tinker" (JSB)


not by governments

not by technology

by open education!

Stuart Lee

tyranny of the student information system

VLE pigeon-holes you as either tutor, learner or admin

personalization becomes barrier

license based on number of users

therefor restricting use


increased quality of tools

open source to remove license

fine-tuned control of access

cultural gates

much more worrying than technical ones, that will be resolved

increased competitiveness

copyrighted material in open system: people worry

willingness to share?

not new

books from 60s and 70s

worry that we may be doomed for failure if we don't deal with this

Andy Lane

OER value

availability, how many, what form, critical mass

accessibility, where found, by whom

level of use, degree of participation

implications for teaching

granularity of offerings

greater resource based learning tempered with greater interactivity

tuition and support separated from content

many versions of same content for different contexts

curriculum design in content rich environment

implications for learning

mix between, pedagogic support, self reflection, peer support, professional support


why allow all the panelists to do mini-presentations?

too much talking next to each other, rather than confronting views

needed a brutal organiser!

felt a bit like we only got the warm-up for the conversation, and then ... time was up

Vijay Kumar

blended learning

boundariless education

beyond geo-poliical

teacher-learner, research-learning


India Net Enabled Open Education (NO-Ed)

India Net Enabled Open Education (NEO-Ed)



remote access to real labs


collectivity, social software


link between many tools and many repositories

is higher ed ready for opening up?


what are drivers for teachers?

otherwise this will not have impact

Diana: put tools in teacher hands to enable them to tinker

Andy: valued, include in promotion

Stuart: community is others who teach same discipline

audience: sticks and carrots are "old school" - they're not on web2.0

think more outside of box?

posting audio on itunes music store, good for ego

changes relationship between learners and institutions

you are what you measure, how do you measure the value of all this for teachers and learners?

communities form around content

if we create a major university per week, we can still not deal with increasing demand

we need fundamentally new way to do this

maybe it will be more the entrepreneurs than the educators that make this happen?
