Collaborative Statistics is often highlighted in presentations and the media. How did this come to be and why is it still the case? Follow the improvement trail of an OER project as it continues to evolve with increased use. Learn about the services model around open learning materials. Learn how the CC-BY license has allowed for increased student learning and is launching innovative service models surrounding the “text.”

This presentation will include a brief history of how opening licensing Collaborative Statistics has allowed the content to take on a life of its own. The session will explore the text’s beginning as a for-profit book, the process by which the text became an open textbook, and the addition of OER multimedia support. The session will discuss how Collaborative Statistics became a prototype for Connexions, the dramatic adoption growth, and the support growing for OER materials. We will then discuss the unintended consequences of open licensing, including enhanced interactive versions, alignment with online assessment engines, adaptation for high schools, and international versions.

Finally, we will glimpse into the future by considering emerging open content that provide a contextualized learning experience available globally, administered locally, used asynchronously (via web or mobile phones), and available for the individual life-long learner.
