“What would you do if you thought you had a solution that would make a high-quality education freely available to anyone with a computer or cell phone, help instructors build new teaching skills and get credit for their accomplishments, and also greatly reduce costs for schools, families and students?  You’d want to tell the world!  That is just what the nearly one hundred videographers who entered the ‘Why Open Education Matters’ video competition, co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, spent part of this summer doing. Here are the top three winners ... In addition to the winning videos, all qualifying videos are available for viewing on the competition website, http://whyopenedmatters.org. All of the videos are licensed CC BY, which means others may distribute, remix, and build upon them, even commercially, as long as they give credit to the creators. The prize winners were determined by a panel of distinguished experts, including Davis Guggenheim, Nina Paley, Liz Dwyer, Anya Kamenetz, James Franco, Angela Lin, and Mark Surman. The contest was a partnership between Creative Commons, The Open Society Institutes and the U.S. Department of Education.  All prize money was provided by non-governmental sources.”
