Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


With point of departure in the world of software, we identify the Open Source concept, enabling us to analyse the application of this, in our view, evolutionary idea in different realms. The realms in question are the Open Learning Initiatives; OpenCourseWare, the Open Knowledge Initiative, the Open Learning Support and finally Connexions. Our cardinal question sums up our focal point: The unfolding of the Open Source method within the realm of online educational institutions: how does it progress and why? We identify structures within the educational system that can benefit and thrive from implementing the Open Source concept. After researching and analysing these initiatives, we deduce possible universal principles at work beneath the Open Source movement via the works “The Open Society and its Enemies” volume one and two by Karl R. Popper.
