New Conference Paper: “Open Educational Resources – a Historical Perspective”
Open Educational Resources – a Historical Perspective
From the Executive Summary:
This document constitutes a limited international history of work directed at the sharing of learning resources. In order to develop a coherent narrative, we have constrained our research to:
- Focusing on policy rather than technical approaches
- Not attempting to be exhaustive – looking at exemplars rather than trying to cover every project in this area.
- Concentrating specifically on Higher Education, rather than other educational sectors.
- Paying particular attention to the way in which international movements have affected the UK.
