The Chronicle of Higher Education profiles Kim Thanos, Chief Executive of Lumen Learning. She notes that faculty who adopt open-access materials put class materials into students’ hands on the first day of class, and calls this “a social-justice issue.”
Lumen Learning, in Portland, OR, was founded in 2012 with David Wiley, (Wiley is one of the foremost advocates of Open Educational Resources). Lumen Learning works with faculty to create courses with open digital content. Currently there are 60+ courses in Lumen Learning’s catalog.
