The collective advancement of education through open technology, open content, and open knowledge. This book is probably the most comprehensive collection of writings to date on the open education movement. It paints a picture of numerous experiments and roads started upon in an arena that is still in its infancy but which offers many major possibilities for transformation of education. Where these roads lead and which are most fertile are still unanswerable questions. But there is no better starting point than this book.
