Open Educational Resources: Short free online course starts Monday from ANU

A free on-line course "Open Educational Resources: A Continuum for Practice" is being offered by the Australian National University (ANU), starting Monday. This is in the ANU Online Coffee Course Series, where the student spends fifteen minutes a day studying for a week. There are no tests, just on-line discussion.
"In this upcoming course, you’ll explore some of the deeper issues surrounding open education; specifically, practical decisions and questions that should be asked when developing, reusing, and collaborating on open education activities. Each day the facilitators will provide stimulus for reflection and group discussion, as well as a synthesis of the previous days’ discussion."


  1. From Resources to Practice: why ‘mere access’ isn’t enough.
  2. ‘I’ll know it when I see it’, or, usefully defining quality in openness.
  3. Assessment in an open world: beyond the disposable assignment.
  4. Designing for reuse: PDF and the open practitioner.
  5. ‘Nothing new’ or radical reality? Putting openness into practice.
