    2. To avoid the inevitable technical problems, students should practice with e-assessment technology and address common technical hitches and glitches early on in the semester.

      When I construct my course, do I include a dummy run in my design. So that students can test things out beforehand. i often use a syllabus quiz as a dummy run. This "kills two birds with one stone". You can check to see if students have read the syllabus and if they can use the assessment tool. .

    1. It is a truth universally acknowledged that human beings naturally inhabit an open ecosystem

      This is an incredibly broad statement? The open ecosystem that I see is dominated by the global north. This relationship is extractive, colonial and is not globally representative. We are mainly hearing the privilege voices of the north. Of the 54 scholars, 27 are from Europe, 13 from North America. Its clear that within the open movement. There is a clear failure here to see the Euro-American epistemic hegemony and domination,

      Consider: What prevents the adoption and use of OER materials among current lecturers in your institution. Is the OER adoption pyramid” (Trotter & Cox, 2016) a suitable framework to use to categorize adoption factors in your institution? Please elaborate.

    2. Reasons given for lack of OER adoption in the Global North and South

      What are the benefits of OER in the global south for students?

      Students with devices, can access learning m materials (when they are suitably licensed or in the public domain) legally and at minimal cost. (Access)

      Study materials (depending on the license) can be adapted and modified by lecturers and students (student centered)

      These improved learning materials can become locally relevant. This ability to contextualize knowledge allows allows a lecturer to move away from depending on publisher's materials, usually intended for a global north context.. (collaboration)

      Learning materials may be translated (depending on expertise) to vernacular languages. Thus addressing epistemological barriers. (improved learning)

    1. Libraries have the reputation of always being at the forefront when it comes to adopting and using new technologies

      Librarians often lead the way with technology. And the internet of things introduce a whole lot of possibilities. IFLA imagines something called smart bookshelves” with stacks in the library equipped with RFID (radio frequency identification). RFID, we can figure out very fast where a book is located (to within 20 cm).

    1. This article was written in 2009 and it is interesting to see where things have changed and where things have stayed the same. For example, Once upon a time Google's intent to index all the worlds information sounded a bit like a library. But I am not sure if Google and libraries still have that common goal of indexing information ? My recent experience of Google has not been the free flow of ideas. Rather, its been the algorithm driven recommendations. They seem to often offer me search results that pertain to selling stuff than serving up information. The romance phase is a good way to describe this honeymoon period between libraries and Google.
