Week 2: Tim Berners-Lee article

by

This article gave me a lot to think about as I filtered it through a professional and personal lens.   Privacy:  Digital objects and digital content can live a very long time.  This is something that gets easily overlooked by all demographics when using the web.  I almost always think about what I share, who […]

The Almeida article and Pomerantz video really hit on some of things I worry about in regards to OER and its future success.  “OER […]
