Are OER both open and innovative? Week 2

How would you judge OpenLearn in terms of your definition of innovation?

My view of innovation does not differs much from the view set up by the module, in that regards Open Learn is an educational OER made coherently within this idea with the advantage that its made with the backing of a huge educational institution, Open University, which stands on the word open as a mean to reach any person who wants to study and wants to have higher education quality for its studies.

What key challenges facing the OER movement can be dealt with more quickly than others?Assessment and evaluation, technological infrastructure is in my opinion the ones can be solve the quickest, because it only relies on the main stakeholders to take the necessary provisions in other to deliver education.Copyright and Licensing is also an issue that can be dealt within a logical framework, once we understand the framework we are setting up, the solutions, limitations fall into place logicallyQuality, adoption, and research instead, are more elusive and difficult to solve as we must first understand the impact of our first attempt.Maybe Open Learn for example has lots of courses that are peripheral to the Open University degree and can be very helpful to develop the skills necessary to study at a higher education level and they aim to balance out the shortcomings of an lazy education system teaching lazy young people…

How do open educational resources challenge conventional assumptions about paying for higher education modules?

There is a more serious question for me: Should be all education be free, financed by the state, companies, or individuals… There is no light that does not project shadows, and both have pros and cons…

The answer to this question is entirely political

A bit underwhelm at the site as it is impossible to see more than an approach of what they are trying to, but no product or direct learning experience/ example.

Financial services at a wider scale is something that traditional education has failed to deliver in mostly every country in the western world. If they are able to produce and deliver what they say the do, is a very innovative way to compensate those traditional short-comings inherited in the traditional education.

For the reading of the website looks as an innovative approach, but the tools mentioned and required to deliver such learning experience are expensive, mostly because they want to also use AI tools for research…
