Part 1: Co-Creation of Open Content: Distribution, Conflict and Management

Posted June 22, 2011 3:33 p.m. by Stylianos_H

The dynamics of content creation within open participatory socio-technological systems, exemplified by wikipedia, have challenged conventional academic and educational publishing models. We argue that to be successful, open content production must overcome conflicts of attribution, copyright, authenticity and quality control. This symposium session focuses on uncovering the conflicts inherent in the creation of open content and the issues that resonate across both academic and learning and teaching settings. We present four case studies that provide insights into the major factors that impact on the production of open content. The purpose is to provoke discussion and debate around the processes that need to put in place to ensure successful collaborations towards open content production.
