Course Description

Open source, open science, open data, open access, open education, open learning -- this free, online course provides an introduction to the important concept of openness from a variety of perspectives, including education, publishing, librarianship, economics, politics, and more, and asks you to discover what it means to you. Open Knowledge is international and multi-institutional, bringing together instructors and students from Canada, Ghana, Mexico, the United States, and the rest of the world. It will challenge you to take control of your own learning, to determine your own personal learning objectives, to contribute to the development of the curriculum, to reflect on your progress, to learn new digital skills, and to take a leadership role in the virtual classroom.

As a bilingual course, we have added a Google Translate button to make the interface available in Spanish (and other languages), have linked to Spanish translation...

As a bilingual course, we have added a Google Translate button to make the interface available in Spanish (and other languages), have linked to Spanish translations for many of the English language videos, added Spanish language materials where available, and welcome student suggestions for additional non-English resources for inclusion in the crowdsourced curriculum.

The course will provide you with the opportunity to connect with colleagues from different countries and professions, and to better understand areas where your interests overlap and where unexpected distinctions exist. We hope you’ll consider taking this journey with us.

One of the unique features of this course is that we're building the modules around existing Open Educational Resources. Instead of creating our own lectures videos, we're curating the best from the open web, and we'd like to invite you to help us by contributing your discoveries to our growing list. We ask that anything you add be tagged with the appropriate module/week number (see below) as well as any relevant descriptive terms. Contributions in other languages are most welcome.
