So this seems exactly right: "The unfortunate equation of open education w/ free text books has made the movement seem more and more myopic and less and less compelling." It's Jim Groom, and cited within this Cliont Lalonde wrap-up of the recent OpenEd conference in British Columbia. And as Lalonde responds,. "textbooks are so deeply ingrained in our education systems that trying to find others ways of doing education for many is very difficult, especially in an education world where we continually remove capacity for those faculty who DO want to change and experiment and try different things."
