Foundations for OER Strategy Development

Commentary by Stephen Downes

This document has matured a lot since it began life as a proposal earlier in the year. It is not much more balanced and nuanced, and is approaching a state where it can be considered a comprehensive account of open educational resources (OERs). There are still bits I disagree with: it should be more focused on the value proposition, and less focused on the specific manner in which the value is realized; and it still stresses a common approach (and especially definitions and standards) on grounds of being able to scale rather than a diverse and multi-faceted approach on grounds of usefulness. But it's better - a lot better - than what I was seeing earlier.
