Open educational resources can be central to how universities pursue their mission of education and research through infrastructure. Initiatives like open courseware and open institutional repositories harness the power of the Internet to support scholarly values through open dissemination of scholarly products. The flip side is to transcend campus boundaries in supporting university functions with developments like hosted services and mobile platforms, crowdsourcing of instructional functions, and educational offerings where remote students can participate in on-campus courses. These possibilities are reshaping the idea of the university from an isolated city on a hill to an open gathering place where ideas and experiences mix and remix.

What happens when the power of the internet threatens the way universities do their business? - Hal Abelson #E11_FS02 #edu11

Interested in Open Educational Resources, then you might be interested in "Openness" as well...
From critical IT services to educational content, distributed models based on openness are challenging higher education's traditional approaches. The Openness Constituent Group (http://www.educause.edu/groups/openness) focuses on the emergence and adoption of open technologies, practices, policies, and initiatives, and how they affect the delivery and support of education. Topics include but are not limited to free and open source software, open content, open educational resources, open courseware, open standards, and management practices such as open business and enterprise 2.0.
