I noticed that for me, MOOC ‘objectives’ such as “Detail how…”, “Describe how…”, actually inhibit reflections in the sense of: What struck me as susprising or salient or resonating?
If measuring the ‘effectiveness’ is mainly about traditional criteria such as knowledge content and storing it safely away, it will be very unbalanced. Measuring OERs, by contrast, offers the opportunity to try out and define new criteria.
I was curious how much I would be able to find from existing OERs and how much I would need to create by myself. I was surprised how easy it was to find things.
What are the most urgent cases where OERs are most desirable? I think it is often graphics, not text.
I liked Wiley’s description of the current copyright situation as a trap. Most authors seem to put up with the trap.
