The Cape Town Declaration Comes Online!

The Cape Town Open Education Declaration, available online at, is an inspiring document about the core principles of open education that extends invitations to would be participants in the movement and makes recommendations important for the future of open educational resources and the open education movement generally (e.g., “taxpayer-funded educational resources should be open educational resources.”)

This document is the result of one of the best facilitated and most fun meetings I’ve ever had the privilege of attending, and is deserving of your immediate attention and eventual signature. I say “eventual” because the Declaration is available now in a draft form and we are asking the broader community to give us feedback. I hope you find time to review the document soon!
