OpenLearn and OpenSocial

October 31, 2007

While at the OpenLearn2007 conference I have just found out that the rumoured release of a new set of tools from Google to support social spaces is true, with an expected launch on the 1st November. What is interesting in relation of this conference is that we are talking very much about the potential to link up the social aspect with free learning and the use of Open Educational Resources. Both John Seely Brown and Cathy Casserly referred to the impact of Google on our thinking and their potential as a partner. So I am sure I won’t be the only one thinking whether OpenSocial has a synergy with OpenLearn – not least because of the name!
