Cute Kitten Syndrome: Open Educational Resources

George Siemens, Connectivism Blog, May 01, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

George Siemens raises some worthwhile questions about open educational resources (OERs). He's right, we have discussed the concept over the years. For me, as for him, it is the ethical dimension of 'denying people access to education' that motivates the discussion. Which means, and I agree, "OERs are window dressing if systems and structures of education do not change." Related: Techdirt on government-funded textbooks.
