About Open Education Week

Open Education Week

If you have an interest in open education, but can't quite make it to any of the conferences dedicated to the movement, you're in luck. The Open Education Week (OEW) event is free and accessible to anyone with a computer and an Internet connection. Among the many resources available to participants in the event include webinars on topics ranging from textbooks to Creative Commons licenses, digital media to distance learning. If you can't attend an event live, materials may be available for you online at a time that's more convenient for you, so there's really no excuse not to check it out!

Previous Coverage of the Open Education Movement

Study.com is no stranger to open education. In the past, we've discussed issues relating to the movement, ranging from firsthand experiences of life as an OCW student to an analysis of how the movement looks in community colleges. Our interest doesn't stop there, though. Writers for Study.com have also discussed the future of OCW and OER and what open education looks like in Europe.

Additionally, we've scored some interviews with big names in open education. One of our interviewees, Brendan Barrett of United Nations University, is a participant in Open Education week. Other interviewees include Dr. Gary Matkin of the University of California, Irvine. Dr. Matkin and the University are also involved with OEW.

Our staff has also visited some open education conferences, though these were physical conferences rather than the virtual one we're attending this week. You can check out our coverage of the Open Courseware Consortium Conference, which was held in May of 2011.

Check Back!

We'll be attending, reporting on and analyzing several of the events for OEW, so don't forget to check back with us to find out what's going on in the world of open education! The event concludes on Friday, and we'll be there every step of the way to let you know what those most involved and invested in this movement have to say about its development and future. So come on back to Study.com's Education Insider this week to learn more about this important bright spot in education's future!
