The Power of Open Educational Resources

  1. 1. The  Power  of     Open  Educa2onal  Resources   David  Wiley,  PhD   Chief  Academic  Officer,  Lumen  Learning   Scholar  in  Residence,  University  of  Utah  
  2. 2. Nice  and  Open   Meanings  maGer  
  3. 3. “Nice”  -­‐  late  13c.   "foolish,  stupid"  
  4. 4. “Nice”  -­‐  late  20c.   "kind,  thoughRul"  
  5. 5. What  If…   an  educator  revived  the  old  meaning?  
  6. 6. “Nice  people  are  certain     to  fail  my  course.”   Which  “nice”?     How  might  the  student  success   conversa2on  change?  
  7. 7. “Open”  –  Early  70s   “no  admission  requirements”  
  8. 8. “Open”  –  Late  00s   Evolved  into  a  much  more  nuanced,   specific  meaning  
  9. 9. Open  Educa2onal  Resources?   Any  kind  of  teaching  materials  –   textbooks,  syllabi,  lesson  plans,   videos,  readings,  exams  
  10. 10. Open  Educa2onal  Resources?   1.  Free  and  unfeGered  access,  and   2.  Free  permission  to  engage  in  the     “5R  ac2vi2es”  
  11. 11. •  Make and own copies Retain •  Use in a wide range of ways Reuse •  Adapt, modify, and improve Revise •  Combine two or more Remix •  Share with others Redistribute The  5Rs  
  12. 12. What  If…   an  educator  revived  the  old  meaning?  
  13. 13. “I’m  teaching  an     open  online  course  this  fall.”   Which  “open”?     How  might  the  affordability   conversa2on  change?  
  14. 14. Genuine  Confusion   Open  =  free?     Open  =  free  +  5Rs  
  15. 15. Why  Does  It  MaGer?   Open  is  extremely  powerful     “Faux-­‐pen”  is  not  
  16. 16. Educa2on  is  Sharing   Faculty  with  students   Students  with  teachers  
  17. 17. Faculty  Share  With  Students   Knowledge  and  skills   Feedback  and  cri2cism     Encouragement  
  18. 18. Students  Share  With  Faculty   Ques2ons  in  Class   Assignments   Exams  
  19. 19. Successful  Educators   Share  most  compeltely   with  the  most  students  
  20. 20. 2008  Professor  in  Southern  US   Claimed  (c)  of  his  class  lectures,     declared  student  notes  deriva2ve  works,   and  asserted  control  over  their  use  
  21. 21. “Demented  with  the  mania  of  owning  things”   Walt  Whitman  
  22. 22. If  there  is  no  sharing…   there  is  no  educa2on.  
  23. 23. Interlude:  A  Riddle   What  can  you  give  without  giving  it  away?  
  24. 24. Ideas  are  Magical  (Non-­‐rival)   Can  be  given  without  being  given  away  
  25. 25. “He  who  receives   ideas  from  me,   receives  instruc2on   himself  without   lessening  mine;  as  he   who  lights  his  taper   at  mine  receives  light   without  darkening   me.”   Thomas  Jefferson  
  26. 26. Physical  Expressions  Are  Not   To  give  a  book  you  must  give  it  away  
  27. 27. Expressions  Are  Different   To  give  a  book  you  must  give  it  away  
  28. 28. When  Expressions  Are  Digital   They  also  become  magical  
  29. 29. Unprecedented  Capacity   We  can  share  (and  educate)     as  never  before

  31. 31. Internet   Enables   What  to  do?   Copyright   Forbids  
  32. 32. Use  copyright  to  enable  sharing  
  33. 33. Features of copyright today • aGaches  any2me  “original  work  of  authorship   fixed  in  tangible  medium  of  expression”   • is  automa2c   • applies  to  published/unpublished  works   • lasts  a  long  2me  (typically  life  of  author  +  50   or  70  years)   • “bundle  of  rights”  =  reproduce,  deriva2ve   works,  distribute,  public  performance  
  34. 34. Features of copyright today • copyright  infringement  expensive  (in  U.S.   $750-­‐$150,000/work)   • public  domain  =  not  protected  by  copyright   • copyright  =  “all  rights  reserved”;  public   domain  =  “no  rights  reserved”   • you  have  to  ask  permission  
  35. 35. But how to ask permission?
  36. 36. How to support those that just want to share?
  37. 37. A simple, standardized, legally robust way to grant copyright permissions to creative works (and data).
  38. 38. “Lowers transaction costs”
  39. 39. CC’s legal infrastructure: (1) copyright licenses (2) public domain tools
  40. 40. (1) CC copyright licenses
  41. 41. How do CC licenses work? • built  on  tradi2onal  copyright  law   • works  within  exis2ng  system  by  allowing   movement  from  “all  rights  reserved”  to   “some  rights  reserved”   • gives  creators  a  choice  about  which  freedoms   to  grant  and  which  rights  to  keep   • minimizes  transac2on  costs  by  gran2ng  the   public  certain  permissions  beforehand  
  42. 42. Step 1: Choose Conditions" Attribution" ShareAlike" NonCommercial" NoDerivatives"
  43. 43. Step 2: Receive a License"
  44. 44. (2) CC public domain tools
  45. 45. CC0 Public Domain Dedication • read  “CC  Zero”   • universal  waiver,  permanently  surrenders   copyright  and  related  rights,  placing  the  work   as  nearly  as  possible  into  the  worldwide   public  domain  
  46. 46. Public Domain Mark • not  legally  opera2ve,  but  a  label  to  be  used   by  those  with  knowledge  that  a  work  is   already  in  the  public  domain   • useful  for  very  old  works  where  we  know  it  is   in  the  public  domain   • only  intended  for  use  with  works  in   worldwide  public  domain

  113. 113. Conclusion   (Finally!)  
  114. 114. Genuine  Open  Moves  Us  Forward   Increase  learning   Decrease  costs   Enable  new  pedagogies   Empower  faculty   Facilitate  con2nuous  improvement  
  115. 115. Fauxpen  Takes  Us  Backward   Free  but  not  open   None  of  the  benefits  of  open    
  116. 116. Lumen  Learning   It’s  all  open     Full  set  of  services  enabling  open  learning   (e.g.,  training,  licensing,  ID,  hos2ng,  support,  CI)
