Don Gorges Don Gorges __Favourites of many great comments and research links _ Phil Hill – Not to be cynical, but isn’t this what was envisioned with CA with SB 1052 / 1053 enacted in 2012? see _ http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/billNavClient.xhtml?bill_id=201120120SB1052 _ Fred M Beshears – There is report on OER use in the US funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation contains a number of important findings on OER use and adoption in the US. less 2d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __While participating in a recent BCcampus Open Textbook workshop, I submitted this piece which includes a Case Study of the 1st year Economics course taught to BComm Students by Professor James E. Pesando at the University of Toronto – It suggests that Students benefit when the Professor provides the necessary syllabus and course notes for their Students to find/review/choose textbook options that align with their expectations. _ https://dongorges.wordpress.com/2015/02/08/don-gorges-bccampus-workshop-activity-4-life-of-a-cc-by-open-textbook/ _ In this case, BCcampus, OpenStax and Boundless offer free options to the textbook course materials used by the Professor. less 1d ago

Don Gorges Don Gorges __Tony, in this scenario, as you look at how modularization could lead both a wider range of access to credit courses and more open use of learning materials, it would be helpful to expand on the ways that the University of British Columbia Wiki has contributed to development and uses of educational resources. One finds the UBC Wiki lists several courses relevant to Watershed Management, including those in the SOIL Category_ http://wiki.ubc.ca/Category:SOIL _ less 8d ago

Tony Bates Tony Bates Thanks, Don. There’s a whole story to be told around both UBC wikis and UBC blogs, which have been very successful. I’m going though to have to treat this as a separate post, as there is so much to cover. 8d ago

Mary Jo Quay Mary Jo Quay What do you choose? Pretty or ugly? Just about everyone goes for attractive, whatever that might mean. What gets clients to even look at what is being sold? If you have 9 seconds for engagement, use it to the best of your ability. 6d ago
