Content-type: text/html ~ Stephen's Web ~ OER24 Guest Post: “R” is for Resources but it is far from enough

Knowledge, Learning, Community

I'm not sure how I feel about listing a post where the author was "assisted" by Gemini Advanced, an AI. But I was considering it for inclusion anyway, because it makes the important point that open and accessible learning is about more than just open educational resources. The presentation is a bit stilted and in the listicle format common of AI systems. And I feel it misses some important points - the need to address educational experiences (not just the usual 'education' accoutrements of support, assessment and accreditation). Similarly, I felt the approach to systemic innovation to improve access could be more broad. I would also have added an argument for public support of OER costs and support based on the general public benefit that accrues from individual attainment in higher education.
