A key issue in the open education arena is whether OER should favour commercial use.
This is a complex topic involving a wide range of perspectives which suggests a continuum of considerations rather than a definitive binary answer.
This discussion will roughly mirror the structure of an Oxford-style debate. However, in the pursuit of improved understanding of a complex topic the participants will be the ultimate winners by virtue of your engagement.
Your votes and comments are needed to build a collective stream of digital consciousness in changing our world for the better -- that is, through degrees of openness in education.
You will need an account on this platform to cast a vote. If you don't have an account for the UNESCO OER Community, you can request an account from Abel Caine (email: firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wayne Mackintosh during the course of the debate (email: email@example.com).
