Every day, learners use and reuse open, digital resources for learning. Reusing Open Resources offers a vision of the potential of these open, online resources to support learning. The book follows on from Reusing Online Resources: A Sustainable Approach to E-learning. At that time focus was on the creation, release and reuse of digital learning resources modeled on educational materials. Since then the open release of resources and data has become mainstream, rather than specialist, changing societal expectations around resource reuse. Social and professional learning networks are now routine places for the exchange of online knowledge resources that are shared, manipulated and reused in new ways, opening opportunities for new models of business, research and learning. The goal of this book is to extend the debate of how open, online resources might support learning across diverse contexts. Twenty-four distinguished experts from nine countries distributed across Europe and North America contribute empirical evidence and ideas. Collectively they provide a vision of the potential of open, online resources to support learning across everyday contexts of education, work and life.

"As the use of open resources and open practices moves from a peripheral interest to mainstream practice, this book provides a timely insight into the issues and debates. It draws together an impressive range of authors to cover learning design, MOOCs, learning networks, learning analytics, OERs, and more. This range demonstrates how the open approach has successfully expanded to touch upon many aspects of academic practice. Understanding these issues is of significance to all those interested in the direction of higher education." --Martin Weller, Professor of Educational Technology, The Open University, UK "In this collection, Allison Littlejohn and Chris Pegler have brought together leading authors in the field of online resources. The different perspectives help to clarify why and how we use and define them, and what they are, as well as the issues involved in implementations. I would recommend this book to educators and administrators interested in reusing online resources." --Rory McGreal, UNESCO/COL/ICDE Chair in OER, Athabasca University, Canada
