Open for Use? The Challenge of User Generated Content and its Impact on Open Educational Resources

Graham Attwell, Pontydysgu, Oct 29, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Graham Attwell links to Steve Wheeler's presentation on open education resources (OERs) given to the 2010 EDEN Research Workshop. The presentation reinforced the idea that OERs are really the creations of a community sharing content with itself. Why is this important? Well, because contrasted with that is the picture of content as commodity, of publishers creating and students consuming, of a view of education as a market, rather than a social or community activity.
