Free education opportunities on the meaning, application, and impact of “openness” as it applies to education, science, research. We offer online courses, face-to-face workshops, and innovative training programs on topics such as Creative Commons licenses, open educational resources, and sharing creative works. Individuals and organizations may learn about these and other tools to better achieve their goals or to overcome the everyday barriers one encounters due to legal or technical restrictions.
Universal access to and participation in research, education, and culture is made possible by openness, but not enough people know what it means or how to take advantage of it. We hear about Open Source Software, Open Educational Resources, and Open Access… But what are these movements, who are their communities, and how do they work? Most importantly—how can they help me?
Learning about “open.”
Whatever the field, we seek to help people do what they already do better with the aid of open resources and tools. Here are just a few of our projects:
Courses: Copyright 4 Educators / Designing Collaborative Workshops / Writing Wikipedia Articles
Workshops: Open Science Course Sprint / Building an Open Ed Timeline / SOO in German
Training programs: SOO Kenya After School Program / Copyright for Librarians in Latin America
