Open Education has come of age. The tiny movement that began in the late 1990s as a desire to increase access to educational opportunity has blossomed into requirements in national grant programs, key strategies in state legislatures and offices of education, content sharing initiatives at hundreds of universities and high schools, and a wide range of innovation and entrepreneurship in both the commercial and nonprofit sectors.
We have largely succeeded in building out a vast, high quality content infrastructure atop which a new generation of educational innovations are being built. Open educational resources are increasing learning throughout the world and saving students, institutions, and governments money. Come join us as the Open Education 2012 Conference celebrates these successes.
