Tim O’Reilly: The University as an Open iPhone Platform

Both the iPhone and Facebook took off when they opened themselves up to outside developers, letting them innovate and build thousands of unforeseen apps for users. In the video above, tech guru Tim O’Reilly asks how universities can do the same. How can they let developers (in this case, the professors) innovate and distribute content to users (students) in new and efficient ways? There are more questions than answers here, but if you want to imagine the university in the 21st century, these are the questions you can’t avoid.
