Amazon’s Plans for OER

Posted on 19 February 2016 by jrobes

Amazon und Bildung. Eine aktuelle Nachricht, viele Fragen und ein Blick nach vorn:

1) “Amazon Education is working on a new platform that will allow schools to upload, manage, share, and discover open education resources from a home page that in some ways resembles the one shoppers are accustomed to accessing on the massive online retailer’s website.” Diese OER-Plattform soll Amazon Inspire heißen, berichtet Edweek Market Brief.

2) Viele Fragezeichen um Amazon Inspire. Braucht es ein Repository für OER überhaupt? Und wie sieht das Geschäftsmodell von Amazon Inspire aus? Wie wird die Plattform funktionieren? Welche Lizenzen werden unterstützt? Fragt zum Beispiel, aber nicht nur, Audrey Watters: “It remains to be seen … if the ‘problem’ that Amazon really seeks to solve here is a stronger foothold in the education market.”

3) Wie das aussehen könnte, hat Alexander Holt vor einigen Tagen beschrieben: Amazon University. Online. Badges. “The future of Amazon University is strong as we continue to become the first truly global university. As our alumni network and reputation with customers and employers grow, we predict increasing demand for our services. We are excited about the future of a more educated, less indebted citizenry.” So Jeff Bezos, Amazon, im Jahr 2030.
