EDUCAUSE (www.educause.edu), a nonprofit association whose mission is to advance higher education by promoting the intelligent use of information technology, has announced the formation of a new Constituent Group (CG) on "Openness" (www.educause.edu/groups/openness)
From critical IT services to educational content, distributed models based on openness are challenging higher education's traditional approaches. The Openness Constituent Group focuses on the emergence and adoption of open technologies, practices, policies, and initiatives, and how they affect the delivery and support of education. Topics include but are not limited to free and open source software, open content, open educational resources, open courseware, open standards, and management practices such as agile methods, open business and Enterprise 2.0.
EDUCAUSE and the Openness CG invites you to join the discussion at www.educause.edu/groups/openness
