Since 2007, the IEEE Signal Processing Society has worked towards its mission of expanding visibility and outreach to students, instructors, practitioners in industry, and the global developing world through high-quality open-access education. Embracing the principles of open access, the IEEE-SPS has partnered with Connexions [http://cnx.org/], one of the world’s leading open education resource repositories, to develop and disseminate a critical mass of high-quality, peer-evaluated content and to make it available to anyone, anywhere, at any time, for free on the web as well as in a variety of other formats. Materials submitted to this project pass through a careful Society quality evaluation, ensuring that the content is deserving of the imprimatur of the IEEE brand for quality.
The open access movement promises to fundamentally change the way authors, instructors, and learners interact worldwide. It takes inspiration from the open source software movement – GNU Linux and Firefox, for example – mixes in the powerful communication abilities of the internet and the world wide web, and applies the result to teaching and learning materials like course notes, curricula, and textbooks.
Everyone has knowledge to share! Contribute a two-page module on your favorite topic, a set of interactive simulations, a tech note on a DSP application, the notes from your short course, or your out-of-print textbook. Translate a module into another language. Volunteer to peer review contributions. Or just tell other people about this new opportunity to energize the signal processing community and knowledge base.
