Why Open Education Matters

The Why Open Education Matters video competition closed today. Here’s our submission, which we got in just under the gun.

I wrote the script and did the voice recording and editing. Degreed sponsored the animation, which was done by Mike Moon and produced by Haugen Creative. (Degreed is a new company I’ve co-founded with David Blake building on the ideas in my post The Trouble with Transcripts and David’s post Jailbreaking the Degree. If we win the competition, the award money will help get the company off the ground. Wish us luck!)

    Nice work. Thanks for sharing and good luck in the competition. I’m hoping to remix some of these videos for a couple OER awareness-building efforts I’m working on as well.

    The Video is just great. Thank you so much! To re-use it and to translate it into german i would need the project files – Adobe After Effects – or how ever it was build. Could you give us acces to these ressources?
