The content from an organisation (such as The Open University in the UK) does carry cultural overloadb and this could be seen as  negative aspect. However it also demonstrates how OER can act to communicate ideas as well as culture. Providing those involved see themselves contributing as part of a larger community and look for opportunities coming in then individual voices in materials have a role. Considering the user viewpoint and the options implied by openness that people *may* take advantage of gives a route forward and avoids cultutal worries as a barrier.
