Open Tapestry
Nov 23, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Email from Edward Cherlin sent to the UNESCO list on OER mapping: "You should take a look at the OER database at Open Tapestry 110,000 listings. Replaces OER Recommender." It's interesting, though I do not like the 'clippings' method of presentation - it's slow and wastes screen space. (Again, note the list archives are open only to list subscribers - I think they should be open to all, so contents are searchable and discoverable on the open web).

Re: Open Tapestry

We're currently working towards presenting OER in the form of courses and modules instead of as items, so hopefully it will be more helpful and useful for everyone! Helpful feedback from Edward Cherlin though! Thanks! [Comment] [Permalink]
