Knowledge, Learning, Community
David Wiley has been busy recently. His open access learning company, Flat World Knowledge, has received $8 million in venture capital funding - and while I congratulate him, I caution, that VC funding is often the first step toward compromising one's values (the ridiculous PR-speak has already started). Wiley has also been looking at open education and accreditation. And while fighting an anti-OER bill he is celebrating an Illinois bill that supports OER.
