Layo's visit

Yesterday we had the pleasure of Titilayo Seriki's company for a lunch-time discussion. She runs a consulting firm, along with Peter Heinecke, called Cielarko. The reason I invited her to come and chat to us was that I wanted to hear more about her PhD thesis results and how they might affect Siyavula.

Who should make OERs?

I just wanted to capture a concern and some thoughts around it. Today I heard it said in a meeting that available OERs are of low quality, irrespective of their cost. This was used to justify the statement that we should not expect OERs to be cheap, we should focus on their quality even if that means that they are expensive. This certainly doesn't sound like something I should be concerned about but it is. It can be used to justify spending vast sums of money to have a few experts write material which is released under an open licence.
