The value of OER can be demonstrated by free availability of digital copies of these two books. The latest book by Martin Weller, Professor of Educational Technology at the Institute of Educational Technology, is freely available online. The Digital Scholar: How Technology Is Transforming Scholarly Practice (2011) The second edition of what has become a classic in the field of distance education, edited by Terry Anderson, Professor of Distance Education at Athabasca University, is also freely available online The Theory and Practice of Online Learning (2008)
Next week is the HEA Annual conference and I will be presenting on how Embedding OER Practice has provided opportunities for developing and supporting individual digital literacies. The presentation will also be available here.
