OpenEd is a structured educational resource loosely
based on the models of iTunes, Wikipedia, Instructables, and others. OpenEd will benefit product design and development communities and groups well beyond Designfluence.
Designfluence wants to create this resource to aggregate specific and appropriate knowledge and learning opportunities within a framework that is not found anywhere else.
The business model for OpenEd is designed around the concept of Apple’s iTunes. The framework and general guidance is free; instructional content downloads will be available at $0.99 for “byte-sized” digital files, and $9.99 for topical or aggregate courses.
