Una Daly, Community College Outreach Director, OpenCourseWare ConsortiumSaratoga, CAJohn Gonder, Instructor, Las Positas CollegeThe open source pioneers launched the "open" movement in the 1990s with the promotion of freely reusable software and community development. Since that time open textbooks, open courses, and open-access journals have joined the disruptive "open" movement. IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization, recently announced that all its peer-reviewed journals will offer open-access publishing. ACM is also moving towards open access. Come and find out about the repositories for open textbooks, open courses, and open journals that you can freely reuse and revise in your ICT classroom to lower costs and enhance your teaching.This session will help attendees to understand the current open education movement in the context of the early open source initiative and how that eventually lead to the open course movement, open textbooks, and open access journal publishing.The presenter will share the IEEE and ACM case studies where they are transforming their publishing business from an "all rights reserved" to "open access" model. In addition, recent California state higher education policy and legislation that has been supportive of open educational practices to lower costs for students will be discussed.Finally, attendees will have an opportunity to explore national and international repositories for open educational resources that can be freely re-used in community college ICT classrooms.
