Open Educational Resources plus social software: Threat or opportunity for Canadian higher education?
Anderson, Terry

PublishedJune 2008
ConferenceCongress at UBC

ABSTRACT
Two emerging developments afford opportunity to drastically alter the way people learn and acquire knowledge. The first is the availability of open education resources (OERs) that expand earlier models of discrete learning objects to the production and free dissemination of complete courses and programs. The second is the rapid emergence of a host of networked tools collectively known as social software. This paper overviews developments in both technologies and the social systems emerging to exploit these innovations for both formal and informal learning.
