Hello Phil,

Very nice page! I have yet to make some changes to mine but have been very busy lately.

I do see much potential in open authoring tools, particularly in countries where quality curriculum materials are unaffordable. The ability to reproduce curricula at only the cost of publishing or printing material can make such material accessible more readily and more equitable.

My only concern is that the Creative Commons license under which Wikieducator operates allows material to be used for commercial purposes. How, then, does one prevent businesses whose only interest is to maximize profits, from exploiting this medium? I feel that information in the public domain should be available at no cost as I think most educators who contribute to it do so in the spirit of open learning.

What are your thoughts?

Warm regards, Bernadette http://www.wikieducator.org/User:Rego_b

I agree with you. I think we cannot stop entrepreneurs from picking up free material and selling it elsewhere. --Phil Bartle 22:47, 10 October 2009 (UTC)
