Towards a social learning space for Open Educational Resources
Buckingham Shum, Simon and Ferguson, Rebecca

PublishedSeptember 2010
ConferenceUOC, OU, BYU

ABSTRACT
We identify a number of meanings of "Open", as part of the motivating rationale for a social media space tuned for learning, called SocialLearn. We discuss why online social learning seems to be emerging so strongly at this point, explore features of social learning, and identify some of the dimensions that we believe characterize the social learning design space, before describing the emerging design concept and implementation.
