Open education, technology is still a fairly new concept. It has very clear objective. It is to reduce monopoly, share the knowledge, and engage through collaboration. It is much driven by the recent movement of software open source, initiated from 1998 – present. Now the concept of open source has also been adopted in education, food, medicine, automobile, and science.
Open education, technology, and science is to help people to access the resources with the minimal effort. Traditionally, the right of accessing education, knowing technology is in the hand of some few people and companies. Many people do not have the chance to go to school. Even he/she has the opportunity, it is also a long process.
People have to go to university to get formal training, get a job in these companies, start to work, learn the existing technology and create new technology. It is apparent this process could take at least 10 – 15 years. Open education can facilitate the learning process and minimize the number of years having to learn in the school.
