Opening Up Education: The Collective Advancement of Education through Open Technology, Open Content, and Open Knowledge
Toru Iiyoshi and M.S. Vijay Kumar, editors. Foreword by John Seely Brown. MIT Press, 2008.

These essays by leaders in open education describe successes, challenges, and opportunities they have found in a range of open education initiatives. They approach the central question of how open education tools, resources, and knowledge can improve the quality of education. The contributors (from leading foundations, academic institutions, associations, and projects) discuss the strategic underpinnings of their efforts, the impact of their projects, and how close they have come to achieving a vision of sustainable, transformative educational opportunities.
