The Why and How of Open Education

This book is an introduction to Open Education (OE), giving practical guidance on the design and delivery of OE courses while wrestling with  theoretical considerations of this new and emerging domain. Educators are the main targets, but it will also be relevant to policy makers, senior education managers and the learning industry as a whole.

The book draws from three sources: first from well-established online learning ecosystems, including Open Source Software communities; second from existing Open Courses in traditional formal education and related design models such as the Meta-design framework; and third from EU funded research and pilot projects: FLOSSCom, openSE and openED. This piloting work enabled a thorough analysis and modification of assumptions that emerged from sources one and two.
