David Wiley's vision of open educational resources (OER) and mine continue to diverge. That's not a bad thing; it makes sense to explore different approaches.

In support of this idea, he recently announced something called the RISE framework to find "which OER (out of thousands) are most in need of improvement." And in this post he announces a new open source R package that implements this framework.
