This paper reviews the educational value and innovative uses of open and interactive publishing (OIP) in learning design. OIP is defined in its broadest sense including all the emerging practices brought about by using open approaches and networked technologies to publish and engage with content. It explores two aspects of educational values and uses: (1) Open publications and scholarship provide new forms of open educational resources that stimulate innovations in learning designs and pedagogies beyond textbooks. (2) OIP is by nature a digital learning space whereby creative learners are able to learn from peers and communities through self- and social publishing activities. It also discusses the impact and challenges of OIP inspired innovations, from which practical recommendations are derived.
