OER and the Future of Publishing
Open Education Resources (OER) represents a tectonic shift in education materials. Try typing "mitosis" into Google. Almost every search result on the first few pages is for OER exploring the process of cell division. The same is true for nearly any other concept you type in: "subject-verb agreement," "Pythagorean theorem"--you name it. And what you can find today on the Internet is probably less than one tenth of one percent of the OER out there. Most is trapped on teachers' PCs.
Could free content at scale, distributed for free, break the textbook industry?
