Wayne Mackintosh: Flexible Learning NZ interview - educational resources

This post is a collection of quotes about educational resources from Wayne Mackintosh in an interview with Simon Atkinson and Flexible Learning NZ in 2021. I recommend watching to the interview at this link. There are 3 quotes listed below chronologically.


1. "There is no form of educational delivery more cost-effective, more scalable, or more sustainable than open education." (2:44)


2. "OER (Open Educational Resources) are defined by UNESCO as learning, teaching, and research materials in any format and medium that: reside in the public domain or released under an open license, that permits no-cost access, plus permission for others to re-use, repurpose, adapt, and redistribute." (3:40)


3. "One can think about OER as building a parallel learning universe and being able to support learners who would never have the resources ever to come and study at your institution." (36:23)
