The field of open education is gaining momentum and energy. As additional projects, foundations, universities, and other participants join the movement, the need increases for a single source to gather, sort, analyze, synthesize, and disseminate news related to open education. Open Education News provides you with a daily dose of the most relevant open education news from around the world.

How does Open Education News work?
Open Education News is essentially a group blog. A number of individuals from the US, South Africa, and eventually other locations daily monitor the internet for news related to open education. We then aggregate these items and publish them individually with minor commentary. Occasionally we’ll publish bigger pieces of our own authorship; analyses and such. If you know of some open education news we should write about, contact David Wiley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where do you host Open Education News?
OEN runs on the popular WordPress open source blogging platform. The site is hosted at WordPress.com, which provides great stability and speed for a very low cost and zero administration overhead (e.g., no worry about backups, security, etc.). We highly recommend WordPress if you’re looking for a blogging platform.
