While more educational institutions are experimenting with open educational resources and curriculum delivery via the internet, it is still far from being standard practice. In fact, working with open educational resources raises a number of key questions: How can one fund the development of such courses or the conversion of existing courses into open access? How does one ensure that the courses are updated over time, as they will inevitably change? Will such courses just be shared on the web or will one offer student supervision and accreditation to go with them? In this blog, we explore the social enterprise model of Peoples-uni, as one way of answering some of these questions.
