I'm enjoying the workshop on Open Educational Resources (OER) here in Windhoek, Namibia. Today, the workshop for Quality Assurance Agencies is addressing the concept of OERs and how they can be quality assured. Creative Commons and IPR issues have already been raised, and this afternoon we continue round table discussions with representatives from a number of African countries, and delegates from Holland, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Australia, New Zealand and Malaysia.
