Cape Town Open Education Declaration

Wikipedia and Connexions (the open-access digital content repository built and maintained by Rice University) have draft a declaration on open access to educational resources.

Executive summary:  more and more educational content is appearing for free online.   Everyone can participate in this new open education model.  Signatories to the declaration commit to keep making educational materials and technologies free and open to all comers.

You too can become a signatory, by clicking here.

  1. Hi! As a e-librarian you might already know about my blog, but i’ll give it a shot.

    I have been collecting free video lectures on my blog for 1.5 years now.

    My blog is at Free Science Online.

    I have collected maths, physics, computer science, biology, engineering and many other lectures!

    Sincerely,
    Peteris Krumins
