Good post from Leigh Blackall nicely capturing the role and impact of initiatives like OERu. "Places like OERU are potentially important alliances for small to medium sized institutions and private providers who will have to compete with the likes of Pearsons, Google or perhaps even iTunesU, who are clearly moving into this space." A collaboration like OERu creates the sort of scale needed by these smaller institutions in order to access the same sort of attention and market. And as Blackall states, "It's a no-brainer really, and why the formal institutions are so slow to recognise the opportunities here is staggering." Agreed. P.S. Leigh Blackall needs a job - you should hire him.
