Open Education Week Starts Today

The first-ever “Open Education Week” starts today and runs through Friday, March 10. Launched by the Open Courseware Consortium with the participation of nearly 100 colleges, universities, foundations, and other organizations from around the world, the purpose of the event is to raise awareness about the current and potential impact of open educational resources to advance educational access and achievement globally. U.S. Undersecretary of Education Martha Kanter will hold a conference call at 1:00 PM, EST, to highlight the U.S. Department of Education’s support for the effort and announce a video competition on “Why Open Education Matters.” Additional events and webinars are scheduled throughout the week, all of which are open to anyone interested in participating.
