This was the second-placed video in the contest promoting open learning.

The recurring critiques of the current closed schooling system are:

  • it is costly (and becoming more so)
  • information within the system gets old or irrelevant quickly

The benefits of using open educational resources (OER) are that they:

  • are media-rich and more up-to-date
  • offer opportunities to collaborate with other like-minded teachers and learners
  • provide learners with greater choice
  • can be more fun and engaging
