What constitutes an open educational resource?

Learning pathway: Educators care: Why open matters (Part 2)

During Session 2 we consider issues associated with the ownership of ideas in education in a digital world. We introduce and define the concept of Open Education Resources (OER). While working through the materials below, we encourage participants to share their thoughts and reflections with the group via one of the microblogging tools: WEnotes, twitter or Google+. Remember to include the #OCL4Ed tag which is used to harvest posts for the aggregated course feed.
