Lighthouse Comments

The Open Education Consortium is a perfect example of a network of institutions, which connect to share experiences and resources.
The Open Education Consortium has long provided international co-ordination and sharing of OER advocacy efforts. Their annual conference and awards ceremony is a really important point of orientation and system of recognition for the global OER movement.
