Why Open Education Matters

Create a short video that explains the benefits and promise of Open Educational Resources for teachers, students and schools everywhere.

Sharing Knowledge, Improving Minds

Submitted by José Azevedo

A short, animated, infographic explanatory video was produced to illustrate what Open Educational Resources stands for: digital materials that can be re-used for teaching, learning, research and more, made available free through open licenses.

The video travels trough time showing that Gutenberg, McGuffey, state school and the internet made everything easier, but Creative Commons made it free, in every possible meaning for the word: free to share, free to possess, free to create.
