Webinar # 5 - How open education will revolutionize higher education: the impact of open research, open textbooks, OERs and open data on course design and delivery
Although open education initiatives such as OERs and open textbooks are currently fairly marginal, when they are combined with other developments such as open research and open data, they will transform university and college teaching, by shifting the focus away from content delivery to learner support. This webinar looks at the implications of these developments for online course design and delivery.
