OERopoly : A game to generate collective intelligence around OER
Connolly, Teresa · Makriyannis, Elpida · De Liddo, Anna · Wilson, Tina

PublishedSeptember 2010

Collective Intelligence (CI) is a phenomenon that emerges at the crossroads of three worlds: Open Educational Resources (OER), Web 2.0 technologies and Online Learning Communities.
The aim of this workshop is to discover some of these relationships through the use of mediating
artefacts. This paper contains the "rules" to play a board game called OERopoly where ‘gaming’ provides participants with a concrete, enjoyable, experience of “Collective Intelligence” in action.
