Why Open Education Matters Video Competition!


Creative Commons, the US Department of Education and the Open Society Institute recently launched the “Why Open Eduation Matters” Video Competition. We love this idea and thought ShowMe users were the perfect candidates to create videos for the competition. (You could even make a ShowMe!)

The competition is calling for short video submissions explaining the use and promise of free, high quality open education resources. The video should also touch on the benefits and opportunities these materials give to teachers, students and schools.

Video Submissions are due by June 5, 2012. The three winners will be announced on July 18, 2012. For more information and to learn how to enter, visit the website here: http://whyopenedmatters.org/
