Should our commitment to quality be stated as a core value of the WE community?
WE subscribes to four core values that guide our work. We believe:
- In the social inclusion and participation of all people in our networked society (Access to ICTs is a fundamental right of knowledge citizens - not an excuse for using old technologies).
- In the freedoms of all educators to teach with the technologies and contents of their choice, hence our commitment to Free/Libre and Open Source technology tools and free content.
- That educational content is unique - and by working together we can improve the technologies we use as well as the reusability of digital learning resources.
- In a forward-looking disposition working together to find appropriate and sustainable solutions for e-learning futures.
I'm wondering whether or not a commitment to developing high quality OER shouldn't be specified as a core community value -- or is this subsumed in the uniqueness of educational learning materials?
Be keen to hear what the community think.
