OER Infrastructure polarities

Where are we now and where are we going? This post records some notes I made following a OER Infrastructure group discussions at the SCORE autumn Symposium, as we talked I began to see the OER landscape and its tools on two polarities. I also see the notion of setting up and developing OER infrastructures as very subject specific. I created this Prezi to help see what the grey area was in the middle and see if this is where the most effective and sustainable OER infrastructure could exist?
