Why "share" expertise & resources in these times?

(Comment.gif: I am curious about how other teachers from around the world have shared. Is there a place where K12 resources are stored either by country or Year level? I am still pondering what I can offer to other teachers in this forum.Clairbee 05:41, 22 January 2010 (UTC)) (Comment.gif: Hi Claire, thank you for your comment. There is no particular place on the Wiki where specifically K-12 Teachers as we do this as community as a whole. There are however place, such as the Teacher Collaboration Portal] where some of the information is stored. Another place to look would be under the Content tab of the Main WikiEducator page]. Hope this is helpful. --Patricia Schlicht 22:34, 22 January 2010 (UTC))

Who benefits from an OER textbook?

Why higher education institutions like MIT, Tufts University, and others place open courses online?

Does sustainability have something to do with this?
