Educause Annual Meeting, Washington DC, 2011

It's been a very busy day. We started this morning with open educational resources (OER) a concept in which educational resources may be freely shared, revised and/or redistributed -wikipedia style - to create an environment for students and faculty to edit resources. Believed to increase iterative improvements in learning outcomes for student. Penn State University has a project on this.

The concept of Open university is carried even further but Western Gorvernor's University, University of People and OER University. No classes. With OER, looks like there are no professor. Students share ideas in blogs, and write standard exams set by these "virtual" Universities. Oooops, I wonder what is going to happen to the brick and mortar Universities in the nex 20 years. I hope to retire early enough to avoid being laid off.
