Open Educational Resources (OER) Slides 21-28 from Cable Green, http://www.slideshare.net/cgreen/open-education-the-business-andpolicy-case-for-oer

Free no cost Open No cost + permission to change By Adam Bartlett http://www.flickr.com/photos/atbartlett/2432704579/ By Sean MacEntee http://www.flickr.com/photos/smemon/4518528819/ Going back to the idea of Free and Open: A look at MOOCs

MOOCs MOOCs offer fully online courses to anyone without cost to the learner. These courses are generally large scale, up to thousands of students. They offer interactivity through frequent, built in assessments and sometimes peer discussion and guidance from teaching assistants. Users tend to be already highly educated (surveys indicate +/- 70% already have at least one post-secondary degree) Data gathered from users allow interesting research into online learning habits and preferences. Content is almost always fully copyrighted.

Most MOOCs offer free access, but do not grant permission to modify, translate, broadcast or re-distribute; they are free, but not open.

Example, Coursera terms of service You may access the course for personal use only, you may not modify or reuse without permission. Anything you contribute to the course can be used, modified, distributed by Coursera without notification or further permission from you. This may be fine if what you want is to follow a free course. However, if you want to make any modification, use it in a classroom, show content to a group, etc. you need to get permission as you would with any fully copyrighted work.
