In the contexts of freedom of expression and democratic culture, and in the context of the UK Government ICT strategy, is it increasingly relevant for all public sector employees to investigate open source software and open data standards?


Many think it is – and that it is also increasingly important to collaboratively build Open Educational Resources and other Open Content Approaches.

Addressing the UK Parliament in Westminster Hall on 25th May 2011, President of the United States, Barack Obama said:

“In an era defined by the rapid flow of commerce and information, it is our free market tradition, our openness, fortified by our commitment to basic security for our citizens, that offers the best chance of prosperity that is both strong and shared.”


Open to the public is proudly brought to you by BCS Open Source Specialist Group and TDM Open Source Services in order to explore the concept that the openness valued by Obama must be applied to the ways we deal with – and exchange ideas and innovations between – software source code, data standards adoption and educational resources.

This event brings together leading thinkers and practitioners from the world of open educational software in the UK. We will discuss a range of open approaches: not just the source code and data formats, but also open approaches to educational content production and resource sharing.
