OCL4Ed2013

I am one of the facilitators of the course OCL4Ed2013 together with Wayne Mackintosh,  Tel Amiel and Rory Mc Greal.
This blog e4qualityinnovationand learning is my  regular blog, and i will share my rflections on the course OCL4ED2013 here as well. The course started the 4th Of September and will last to the 18th of September 2013.

I am a PhD and a Project Manager at the Centre for Educational Development (CED), and at the Evaluation Office at Lund University, SE. In Dec 2012 I was appointed to take the lead for Lund University to go towards open education, MOOC, OER etc. and to investigate strategic missions on e-learning for Lund University. I earned my PhD from Oulu University, FI (14/12/2012). Myr research is on international benchmarking, quality and quality enhancement on e-learning in Higher Educational Institutions.

I strongly believe and share the open education movements ideas that access to education is a fundamental human right. This course, the OCL4Ed2013 is contributing to the inevitable outcome in the future where open education will be taken for granted by all education institutions.

Unfortunatly, today many education institutions restrict access to learning by locking content behind all rights reserved copyright. In today's world where the cost of replicating digital information is near zero combined with the affordance that the cost of developing high quality courses collaboratively using open educational resources is far cheaper than doing this alone, we have unprecedented opportunities to promote the sustainability of education futures for all.

This micro Open Online Course (mOOC) on open content licensing OCL4Ed 2013 introduces the concepts of open education, copyright and Creative Commons as a contribution from the OER university collaboration and the UNESCO-COL OER Chair network in widening knowledge and capacity development in support of the global open education movement.

The course is freely available for anyone with an interest in open education with options to earn certificates of participation or formal assessment for tertiary academic credit. This course guide provides and overview of the course and assessment options available for participants.
