"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
