Good article today in InsideHigherEd about the problems with so-called "inclusive access" relative to #OER:
A tangent: my #OERWishList includes holding these sorts of events not on Twitter, but on open social media: https://stevefoerster.com/academic-twitter-is-for-the-birds/ #Fediverse
#MOOC providers and IHEs: They’re not “MicroMasters” or “MicroBachelors” or “nanodegrees” or “mini-MBA”, they’re certificate programs. Enough BS — and I don’t mean Bachelor of Science.

Right, releasing my latest OERu Techblog Post: How to run your own NextCloud 18 instance integrated with OnlyOffice - it's like having your very own Google Apps & Google Drive... without Google. https://tech.oeru.org/nextcloud-and-onlyoffice
and you know, the other day I missed someone's toot, and then found it a day later when someone else commented, and I found it because I was interested in them, not because it was a fire hose or displayed because of an algorithm.
It's more like a patch of forest here, where different plants spring up, seasonally, and you can find amazing things if you have the patience and perception to look.
If you noticed that my newsletter is a little short today, it's because I wrote a long post called 'Educational Research in Learning Technology'. I discuss the nature (and weaknesses) of research in our field. https://halfanhour.blogspot.com/2020/02/research-in-learning-technology.html Thanks to Philip Kerr for the writing prompt.
