Politics of openness
I love it, but I hate it at the same time. It's not the politics, which are invigorating, but the ideology. Education is liberal. Get over it.

'Open Teaching': When the World Is Welcome in the Online Classroom
Brief overview of open courses - that gets a number of matters wrong (ie: You don't open Bboard. You move to a different platform). Worth referring to in order to see how open courses are an attitude, not a technology. Comments from Siemens and Drexler correct the article.

: "What was different was the radically decentralized, "kids in control" environment. Instead of restricting posts to a closed discussion forum in a system like Blackboard, the class left students free to debate anywhere. Some used Moodle, an open-source course-management system. Others preferred blogs, Twitter, or Ning. In the virtual world Second Life, students built two Spanish-language sites. Some even got together face-to-face to discuss the material."
