Stephen Downes talk at the Educational Computing Organization of Ontario, Richmond Hill, Ontario:
"The internet offers society the opportunity to provide access to a free or affordable education for all. This concept is known as 'open education' and is the subject of various projects, such as 'Open Education Resources' (OER) or the Open Courseware Project (OCW). This talk looks at the principle of open education, major projects, and reflects the role played by educational technology, and outlines some of the challenges."
The best thing now, is to stop writing, explore the slides, click play (audio), listen, learn, reflect, unlearn, reflect again....Enjoy :)
