Open educational resources are discussed for the topic 2. We have 4 sessions for this topic since last week. Some questions, I keep asking myself… is it safe to share? is it okay not to share? Can my works be recognized? Copyrights? Use my own time to support this work? Is it the right ways […]

I thought of myself as a digital native but after reading Prensky 2001, I realised that I'm a mix between the old and the new. I've lived with digital content all my life, I generally prefer it to hardware content, but I do not have the social networki...

When talking about open learning, one would assume making the material available online for everyone, anywhere at anytime. However, we are living in a world that still high percentage of people have no or limited access to Internet. Looking into the map above shows that in 2017, most of African countries had below 20% access […]

Topic 2 reflections… While writing this, the two weeks period for Topic 2 “Open Learning – sharing and openness” in the ONL202 course has not yet finished, but as I have some time right now, I thought to use this blog to sort some of my thoughts. If Topic 1 “Digital literacies” felt like aContinue reading "Small steps (again)…"

Time flies, and we are almost at the end of the Topic 2 now. In this topic we were asked to explore the benefits and challenges of openness in education and learning. It is a very interesting topic indeed. As all educational resources, there are advantages and disadvantages to Open Education Resources. Especially when we …

For task 2, we were supposed to work on the concepts of openness and sharing in education. I must confess that before registering for this course, I was seeing MOOCs as the bread and butter of online learning. That’s why, I might be attracted to this course in the first place. But, with the assignedContinue reading "Sharing is messy"

  ”Open” and ”free” are nice words almost everyone loves, but they are rather fluffy and ambiguous so we have to make things clearer. But first maybe a look at the context and the “zeitgeist” where the term “Open learning” may be a part. Dig...

The topic 2 is about open education resources (OER) and how to provide an equal learning environment to everybody. Among the participants the working premises differ but we have had fruitful discussions! And this is the best part of PBL work: I am learning!:) In 2012, David Wiley wrote an enlightening article about OER, its […]

I had initially assumed that the second topic of the ONL202 course, Open Learning—Sharing and Openness, would be a relatively straightforward one. But as we went through the introductory material and began our first group discussions, I started to realise that the topic was, for lack of a better word, really open… The first aspect… Continue reading Open learning is not black-and-white

To start thinking about open learning raises many different questions. It can really be discussed from many divergent perspectives. An angle that has engaged me in recent days is linked to part of the topic 2 scenario; “… how do I introduce the idea to my students?”. If you imagine that “my” students are those …

“To open something, it must first be closed” (Mishra (2012). I was thinking about this quote this week. Indeed, we wouldn’t be able to open something that is already open. And how poignant is this quote when we think about how closed education systems have been in the past (some would argue still very muchContinue reading "Open Learning – Sharing and Openness"
