2010 has definitely flown by and if you are anything like me, I can barely remember what happened last week much less over the past year. But, we have had a big year in the Education Channel. To jog your memory I’ve put together some highlights.

Based on views, the most popular articles were (drum-rolls welcome):

1. Open source: dangerous to computing education?

2. Moodle: open source, closed doors.

3. Open Textbook bill

4. Education and the iPad’s architecture of control

5. Free Texts: Sources

6. Open source goes to high school

7. Flat World Knowledge: Open College Textbooks

8. Bill Gates talks “free education”

9. Moodle driving jobs in education

10. Jaron Lanier: open textbooks “appalling and preposterous”

What was your favorite article? If you don’t like living in the past, what/who would you like to hear more about/from in 2011? (Email me or comment below.)

We believe open source in education is imperative to the future of education. Progress has been made over the year but we have a lot more work to do. So, 2011, here we come! We hope you are ready.

Best wishes as we head into a new year. Thank you for your support without it, we would not be as successful.

Goodbye 2010. Hello 2011.
