The website EdTechnica describes itself as "The Open Encyclopedia of Educational Technology" and is part of the EdTechBooks website. It contains about 30 articles on ed tech topics written by various authors. This article describes the project and asserts, "As an OER, EdTechnica extends the 5Rs of openness—retain, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute by also attending to the 3Rs of social justice—recognition, representation, and redistribution." The articles are of acceptable quality, though over time I would expect to see more rigour and standardization.
