2020.4.20 revisited - from 2008-2009 document

  • what's in it for me - learning outcomes, student-centered, project-based
  • finding the good stuff - repositories, rating, referring
  • using it in your courses - reuse, remix, redistribute

  • present and future
    • content creation - students as researchers and publishers
    • adoption - collection, repurpose
    • shifting metaphor - sage / guide / host

For an educational practitioner (and a student) there is more usable content than we could possibly need for education, more is good and more will come. Most of the good stuff is already openly accessible and in many instances copy-able! The communication channels around it all are open too --Leigh Blackall
