Nice collection. Open education, open textbooks – really great ideas and lots of really good resources, but many educators are reluctant to take advantage of them. Students who know about OERs are really interested – cost of textbooks is usually what gets them started. Then they realize the other benefits – current information, shared creation, localization, …
