Phillip Schmidt on OER in Africa

Most Open Education initiatives to date were launched by well established universities in the West. Phillip Schmidt from the University of Western Cape introduces the student-led RipMixLearners project at UWC and discusses the lack of funding for Open Educational Resources (OER) in Africa. We also talked about peer 2 peer university, which is set to launch in early 2009.

I think Phillip very clearly points out  the possible impacts of different “Wes” on education systems.
