Quality of Open Educational Resources

Terry Anderson, Virtual Canuck, Mar 15, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Terry Anderson takes a crack at Tony Bates's challenge on the quality of OERs, offering a pretty basic bootstrap argument: "The commercial publishers have led educators to expect a model where they produce the quality content and educator's buy their product [but] it is time we trained ourselves and pre service teachers to become produsers, not whining consumers with insufficient cash to buy the products we want... the only viable alternative is as Rory has argued to make do, upgrade, enhance, edit, illustrate, customize and otherwise become produsers."
