George Siemens raises some worthwhile questions about open educational resources (OERs). He's right, we have discussed the concept over the years. For me, as for him, it is the ethical dimension of 'denying people access to education' that motivates the discussion. Which means, and I agree, "OERs are window dressing if systems and structures of education do not change." Related: Techdirt on government-funded textbooks.
