    Connexions: Open Source Education

    Looking at this site today from the perspective of my role here at the eLearning company I work at. Thought I would pass it on to you all, if you don't already know about it, as it might be a channel for the Integral message or a good way to collaborate on work.

    Also there may be ideas you might find you could use in your own work.

    I recommend the video and intro below.

    Connexions

    Connexions is a rapidly growing collection of free scholarly materials and a powerful set of free software tools to help:

    • authors publish and collaborate
    • instructors rapidly build and share custom courses
    • learners explore the links among concepts, courses, and disciplines.

    Our Content Commons contains small "knowledge chunks" we call modules that connect into courses. Thanks to a Creative Commons open license, anyone can take our materials, adapt them to meet their needs, and contribute them back to the Commons. And everyone is invited to participate!

    View an in-depth introduction to Connexions in the TED2006 presentation. Take a tour.
