In open education, there is a distortion of events in history and social media has allowed the amplification of certain voices over those who may not have been engaged in social sharing of their open practices. In our project, we hope to rectify that to some extent and to curate diverse voices of open education through video interviews that capture the stories from pioneers from the early days of open and online learning. We will share excerpts from these videos and how to get involved.
