    Enjoyed reading your post James! It is really good to know that Google penalizes duplicate contents.Like both of you I also have concern about the quality of materials in OER. But I believe one day it will be taken care of.Irene- Irene

    Two things I discovered this week somewhat sort of related to OER (interesting none-the-less).A fellow student told me of a FREE course she was taking from Harvard through edx.org. She said she loved the course. It amazes me how many opportunities...

      The other issue regarding quality is also a concern to me. When I was searching for material, it took me a lot of time going through them to select the one that I think it is the best for my purposes. Also, I searched many times in Merlot for example but I couldn't find what I was looking for. I decided to use CC search as well. 
      Thanks!

    I checked the website seeclickfix.com. It is very interesting the way to get people's attention and help for a cause that might not be as big or formal as a gov project but it addresses citizen's issues almost immediately. I agree with you that it...

    I had to chuckle a bit when you said you are not always sure what you're learning from where as I can relate to that comment. I am not totally shocked to hear that Algonquin College has an OER in place. They have a good start to what mobile learning...

      I am not totally shocked to hear that Algonquin College has an OER in place. They have a good start to what mobile learning could look as well, as they have many programs and courses running with some type of technology integration! The information page leading up to the OER itself was very well done. As we venture further into the setup and integration, I see the real importance of having both reason and support offered to why OER's are a viable and sustainable option! With that being said though, I really was expecting to find some AC created materials and not links to repositories!

      See you!

I agree with you that it speeds up getting a solution, reduces the costs and engage communities. I can imagine how useful it would be when a disaster happens in any part of the world. I can also imagine how OER can bring ideas, opportunities of education and resources to remote areas that have difficulty accessing in a regular way.

    The beauty of OER and licensing that permits repurposing. The ease with which you adapt this week's requirements should be similar to how easy it is should be to innovate. Looking forward to your final OER. - Ben Akoh
