|Connexions is a non-profit start-up launched at Rice University in 1999 that aims to reinvent how we write, edit, publish, and use textbooks and other learning materials. It is a global repository of educational content that can be described in four words that borrow from an Apple advertising slogan and a great book by Larry Lessig: Create – in Connnexions, everyone is free to create educational materials and contribute them to the repository; Rip – in Connexions, everyone is free to copy the material and customize it; Mix – in Connexions, everyone is free to mix the material together into new books and courses; Burn – in Connexions, everyone is free to create finished products like e-learning web courses, CDroms, and even printed books. All of this is accomplished using open-access software tools and free-use material through the Creative Commons Attribution license. Connexions is not a tool for creating lesson plans and it is not a container for course syllabuses. It's a bit more like a textbook equivalent of Wikipedia.|
