# Closed Vs Open Authoring Approaches

Fragment of a discussion from Talk:NOSTT/Projects
In my opinion, the open approach does have a place in the scheme of educational things. However, subsequent to all the expression of ideas, there must be sone governing body that would standadize and authenticate the content, before use by the general teaching public. This will minimize the publishing of incorrect and untimely information. All this is based on the notion that the closed approach will constitute these checks and balances.
