The Ed Techie: Yeah, but who pays?

November 24, 2011

Via Scoop.itMore … or less!

“Open education – this, I think, is the most difficult to answer the ‘who pays’ question, because teaching money (whether it comes from the state or the student) is what really funds higher education. There has been lots of work on the sustainability (or otherwise) of the OER movement. David Wiley has probably the best review, and suggest three models: The MIT, USU and Rice models. The USU model is near to making OER a by-product of teaching, releasing content as you go. Whether this will impact on student numbers in the long term if everyone did it, we don’t really know, but generally the feeling is that it wouldn’t as students want more than just the content.”   (via @josemota)
