Why Open Education Matters

You may have heard the buzz about the "Why Open Education Matters" video contest, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Creative Commons, and Open Society Foundations. The contest was meant to raise awareness about the promise of open educational resources (OER) -- free online materials licensed under Creative Commons, which allows educators to reuse, revise, remix and redistribute the content to their heart's content.

All told, there were more than sixty video submissions, and many of the makers outdid themselves with beautiful, passionate, moving videos. The Public Choice voting is open from now through July 11th. I myself am going to have a hard time picking just one to vote on -- so I've chosen a few of my favorites for this playlist.
