Having read through the literature on OER’s, I have a greater understanding of what this means and the purpose of it.
Working in Finance, I agree with Melissa Highton’s blog about the technical debt for OER. There is a lot of technical capital, in whatever shape or form, that needs to be considered in today’s world. The technical debt related to this has the potential to be quite high if decisions made are not researched thoroughly.
I cannot imagine that it is easy to stay ahead of the curve with regards to the latest technology and being the preferred place that everyone would refer to first when it comes to technology. That said, it is an exciting place to be in if you have that kind of leverage built into your business plan.
