Commentary by Stephen Downes

Cyber-Law blogger Michael Geist picks up on the U.S. OER-funding story and adds his own worthwhile insight. "From a Canadian perspective, there are genuine risks that domestic materials will be forgotten as schools gravitate toward the U.S. funded free alternatives." This is one of the motivations for governments tro fund their own OERs, and ought not be lost in the debates over 'sustainability'. It's not just OERs that need to be sustained; cultures do too.
