The Best OER Revise / Remix Ever?

David Wiley, iterating toward openness, Dec 11, 2012
Commentary by Stephen Downes

What I like most of this revise and remix project is the objective. As described by David Wiley: "I wanted my students to gain hands on experience managing a project, I wanted them to feel the pressure of hitting deliverables, I wanted them to feel the nausea of having things fall through, I wanted them to learn to navigate managing people, and most of all I wanted them to feel the joy of completing a piece of work that blesses people lives." He wanted, in other words, to produce real world experience, because he knows that actually doing somethingis far more valuable that simply being told about doing something. That's the sort of thing open learning - with open resources - can produce. Sure, maybe his students produced "the best OER revise/remix ever," or maybe not. It's irrelevant. They learned in the best way possible - that's what's relevant.
