Open Education Keynote with Cable Green – event recording

We had the privilege of having Cable Green, of Creative Commons, on campus March 4, to discuss Open Educational Resources. While he was here, Cable met with administrators, and faculty, gave a keynote address, and even joined a Chemeketa delegation who testified before the Oregon Legislature, about Open Educational Resources and textbook pricing. You can watch his keynote session: Open Education:  The Moral, Business and Policy Case for Open Educational Resources.   Dr. Cable Green, Director of Global Learning, Creative Commons, works with the global open education community to leverage open licensing, open educational resources, and open policies to significantly improve access to quality education and research resources so everyone in the world can attain the education they desire.
