Abstract:The general goal of this chapter is to examine the open education movement in order
to understand its impact on foreign language education. More specifically, this
chapter explores the intersection of blended foreign language learning and open
educational resources (OERs). The affordances and challenges of OERs are summarized
and discussed. A case study of Français interactif, an OER developed at the
University of Texas at Austin, illustrates openness in many of its unique features,
including an open development process based on feedback from a community of
users, a modular design, and an open license. Suggestions are given to language
program directors about how to join the open education community of practice.
