"To have reached the stage where we are technically able to share knowledge and enhance education right across the world is a wonderful thing. This sharing, however, cannot be done at zero cost. Suitable, web-ready material needs to be adapted, designed and paid for by somebody. The costs are extraordinarily modest by the standards used before OER and the benefits beyond imagination. In these days of scarce resources we cannot let the enormous potential of an excellent OER venture like WikiEducator to founder on the rocks of under-funding. I would hope that those who can give (however modestly) are fired by its importance and far-reaching effects - and give generously."
(Prof Brenda Gourley, former Vice Chancellor, Open University, United Kingdom)
