Open and Closed Informational Infrastructures for Education: The Case of “Edutags” as a Connector for Open Learning

Vortrag zusammen mit Michael Kerres auf dem Symposium Open Educational Resources and Informational Ecosystems: Impacts on Education im Network 06. Open Learning: Media, Environments and Cultures auf der ECER in Porto.

Teaching and learning in school essentially relies on analogous and digital media, artefacts and tools of all kinds. Increasingly, Open Educational Resources (OER) become available and the question arises how the interaction between these players is impacted. On the one hand, some players implement closed informational ecosystems that might provide a rich and coherent environment for learning, but also lock the users into a defined and often restricted environment. On the other hand, other players are interested in developing an infrastructure that supports open learning without the boundaries of closed informational ecosystems. Such open informational ecosystems must provide interconnections to numerous, in principal, unlimited number of platforms for learning contents. In the context of the project “Edutags” a reference platform is being implemented by way in which the contents of various providers are being connected and enriched through user-generated tags, commentaries and evaluations. The discussion points out that such an independent reference platform, operated separately from content platforms, must be considered as an important element in an open and truly distributed infrastructure for learning resources. Hence, we do not only need open educational resources to support open learning, we also need to establish an open informational ecosystem that supports such approaches.
