If content is king, why are OER still uncrowned? A developing world perspective’

Asha Kanwar, Balasubramanian Kodhandaraman, Abdurrahman Umar, Pan-Commonwealth Forum, Feb 09, 2017
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This is a conference presentation from 2010 which was listed in the OER Knowledge Cloud today (10 page PDF). So it's a bit dated but it's well written and I felt it was a pretty good description of some fundamental trends and issues in open educational resources. The prize you get for reading it to the end is this redefinition of OER: "The phenomenon of OER/OLR is an empowerment process, facilitated by technology in which various types of stakeholders are able to interact, collaborate, create and use materials and processes, that are freely available, for enhancing access, reducing costs and improving the quality of education at all levels."
