"The field of open education is gaining momentum around the world. Literally hundreds of open education projects are springing up from Tokyo to Boston to Paris to Beijing. Over 2000 courses are now available through OpenCourseWare projects alone. Add to this the growing number of open access learning object repositories, increases in the number and quality of open source educational software projects, the open education work agencies like UNESCO and the OECD are doing, and the field is diversifying as quickly as it is growing.

Open Education 2006: Community, Culture, and Content is a multidisciplinary event designed to promote the discussion of the variety of research, development, and other activities necessary to move the field of open education forward." (http://cosl.usu.edu/conferences/opened2006/)
