Ellen Metter “drank the OER Kool Aid” (or maybe Koala-Aid?), after years of interacting with professors, librarians, instructional designers, copyright experts, policy makers, and activists involved in the open education movement. Her journey exposed her to the creation, use, and promotion of open resources.
Ben Harnke comes to OER from an interest in copyright and fair use, which he has taught for a couple of years. In many ways OER is an extension of the concept of fair use, a clause provided for in copyright law, allowing for open use of resources for the promotion of the arts and sciences.
Ben and Ellen are excited to share the world of OER with you.
