Open Educational Resources

Our goal is to pro­du­ce an in­tro­duc­to­ry cour­se for open video in the areas of end-user tech­no­lo­gies (view­ing, en­co­ding, edit­ing, sub­tit­ling etc) and de­ve­l­oper tools (trans­co­ding, web ap­p­li­ca­ti­ons, de­ve­lo­ping for mo­bi­le de­vices).

This cour­se will be pro­mo­ted as open edu­ca­tio­nal re­sour­ce (OER). It will pro­mo­ted spe­ci­fi­cal­ly to sup­port film and de­ve­l­oper net­works in Af­ri­ca (see Open Video Sudan, Mo­ko­lo). As the cour­se is open­ly li­cen­s­ed it will be avail­able for wi­de­s­pre­ad use.


We are loo­king for peop­le who have an awa­ren­ess of free soft­ware / open sour­ce tools and / or open frame­works in­vol­ved in video and ex­pe­ri­ence in com­mu­ni­ca­ting to lear­ners. As such, de­si­ra­ble skills in­clu­de one or many of the fol­lo­wing:

  • Know­ledge of Open Video for end user tech­no­lo­gies or soft­ware de­ve­lop­ment
  • Wri­ting skills in the area of edu­ca­tio­nal re­sour­ces* Ex­pe­ri­ence of de­li­ver­ing work­shops
  • Con­nec­tions to re­le­vant net­works to dis­se­mi­na­te our work

Would you be in­te­rested in at­ten­ding? Plea­se get back to us if you think you may be able to at­tend and we will in­form you about the pro­cess and lo­gis­tics of this cour­se sprint. You get to be part of an on­go­ing ef­fort to bring more peop­le (es­pe­cial­ly from newer net­cul­tu­res) into free soft­ware / open sour­ce de­ba­tes around vi­su­al media via the crea­ti­on of open edu­ca­tio­nal re­sour­ces (cour­ses will be trans­la­ted). And fi­nal­ly, p2p edu­ca­ti­on is per­haps the most si­gni­fi­cant chan­ge in the way (hig­her) edu­ca­ti­on is or­ga­ni­zed - let's make it work.
