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!)
