On the importance of being open

, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium


In this talk, I will talk about some of the meanings of the word 'open' in relation to learning - open source, open standards, open educational resources, open on-line courses, ... are some of the terms I may refer to. The emphasis will be on the added value of openness and transparency. Maybe we'll discuss some problems and dangers too. I will definitely show some concrete examples of our work in this area.
