The OER Foundation, with generous funding support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation welcome you to our exciting project to advance OER remix opportunities among open content projects.
Connexions, WikiEducator and the Wikimedia Foundation projects constitute the world's largest database of free (libre) content using Creative Commons licenses approved by the Free Cultural Works Definition. Philosophically compatible licensing, knowledge and experience of these open communities and the power of open source software (specifically the Mediawiki and Rhaptos open content engines) provide fertile ground to advance remix and OER content interoperability.
We aim to provide educators with greater freedom of choice to mix and match the best of two OER worlds, namely "producer-consumer" models with more traditional work flow approaches and commons-based peer production. This will contribute to improved collaboration among mainstream OER projects and communities thus differentiating ourselves from closed content approaches where remix is not a viable or scalable alternative.
