Taking OER beyond the OER Community

Various authors, Commonwealth of Learning, Aug 25, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

From the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) on WSIS (no link, because it requires one of those ridiculous logins): "Within the framework of a UNESCO - COL initiative: Taking OER beyond the OER Community, UNESCO and COL will be launching a new OER publication: UNESCO-COL Guidelines for Open Educational Resources in Higher Education (draft). The Guidelines are intended to help key stakeholder groups (governments, higher education institutions, teaching staff, student bodies, quality assurance/accreditation bodies and academic recognition bodies) as they assess the implications of OER for their future policies and actions. UNESCO and COL will be hosting an open online discussion on the publication in the OER Community during the week beginning Monday 19 September." There's a WSIS discussion opening, with the usual disincentives to participation.
