Creative Commons today announced the formation of a new division, ccLearn. This group is “dedicated to realizing the full potential of the Internet to support open learning and open educational resources” and has a stated mission “to minimize barriers to sharing and reuse of educational materials — legal barriers, technical barriers, and social barriers.”
That’s very exciting. If you’ve heard me speaklately, you know that I am a very big advocate of the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement. I believe that this movement coupled with massive collaboration has the opportunity to reshape education by providing valuable resources needed to differentiate instruction.
Stay tuned for more info on this as it develops.
