OTC13: SB 1052 & 1053, OER, DL, MOOCs
|Author(s): Illowsky, Barbara|
Open Educational Resources (OER) is a catch-all phrase that includes some e-textbooks, some MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) and some online learning. But some e- textbooks, some MOOCs and some online learning are not OER. Senate bills 1052 and 1053 require an intersegmental council of 9 UC, CSU and CCC faculty (3 each system) to oversee development of a digital library of OER for the top 50-enrolled lower division courses CA college students take. How do the legislation, OER, and MOOCs affect distance learning? Come learn how they tie ... and how they don't.
