Delmar Larsen

By Terry Greene

Join Terry Greene as he and his guests get some air time to discuss technology-enabled and open learning practices in Ontario Post-Secondary Education.

Gettin’ Air with Delmar Larsen. In honor of Open Education Week 2021, we chat with one of Open Education’s biggest contributors. Delmar is the Director (and originator) of the open textbook platform LibreTexts. In this conversation, Delmar describes how LibreText’s origins can be traced back to catastrophic childhood events. We follow it all the way through to its current state, which is an extremely rich and diverse ecosystem of open learning experiences. So far they’ve provided learners with oh just a few millennia worth of free learning time. We finish off by chatting about a few current issues in Open Education and how we might best move forward.
