One of my goals with the Instruction Spotlight series of posts on CALI Spotlight was to create a list of basic explanations to some of the major educational theories and ideas out there, both to teach myself as well as provide a resource for the CALI user base. Well, as with all of my good ideas, someone has already though
As you may know, one of the projects we work on here at CALI is eLangdell Press, which creates and distributes open law school casebooks. We do this because we believe educational materials should be Open – that is to say, able to be remixed, reused and ideally free.

This collection of 50+ chapters showcases a sampling of academic technology projects underway across the University of Minnesota, projects that we hope inspire other faculty and staff to consider, utilize, or perhaps even develop new solutions that have the potential to make their efforts more responsive, nimble, efficient, effective, and far-reaching.
