An OER Publishing API and the ecosystem it can foster, or "Let the machines do the walking, so teachers can do the talking."
In this presentation I will give a progress report on my fellowship with the Shuttleworth Foundation to create an OER roadmap that will help foster an active ecosystem of tools and services that make it much easier to create, adapt, and remix OER. In this progress report, I will show working prototypes created to accelerate OER creation and adaptation, designed with educators and communities in order to support their content creation, translation, adaptation, and sharing needs. I will give a brief overview of the OER publishing protocol that makes them possible. Further, I will show how educators, learners, and innovators can build on this work. Although the talk will mention standards and protocols, it will be kept at a high level for a general audience and concentrate on how sharing and remixing is made easier and what the future ecosystem may hold.
