We have been following academic technologist Todd Bryant and his ideas for creating meaningful language exchange experiences online. Todd created an open educational resource, the Mixxer, to do just that. (See The Mixxer Launches Spanish and English Language MOOCs.)
Check out Todd’s presentation at the New Media Consortium (NMC) summer conference.
You’ll see that Todd has utilized a variety of open online language learning materials, including some of COERLL’s Spanish and German materials, to create a whole new open resource. This is what remixing and reusing is all about: fueling innovation and ideas to keep creating new learning resources for the public.
