    Hi Anjali, Yes, OER is am emerging area that would deserve a whole series of podcasts! I see it as especially important because of its potential for the undeserved, people in developing nations who may not have access to first-class education (like what we are getting now). I guess the next issue to consider would be access. Would people in developing nations have access to the internet? I think OERs should not only be available online, but also as hard copies, like textbooks from Connexxions (Rice University). Inexpensive, high quality textbooks will serve these people well! I am glad different institutions have looked at different areas/aspects. I would like to see more K-12 OERs, would you?

    Your reflections each and every week have been very insightful. Open Educational Resources has been one of the most exciting “discoveries” this semester. I found MIT’s to be exciting and hope to use it in the near future in my classrooms. Minimizing cost while maximizing learning is important. Getting an MIT or Harvard “degree” at no cost opens doors for many. Now, those who cannot afford it, but have a passion to learn can. I do agree that we should keep textbooks, but maybe have them as guides for what to watch and homework.
