A four step approach was described:

  1. ~$0 is “almost” inevitable but Sub Optimal Educational Resouces dominate rather than true OER
  2. More and better OER about creating effective ER – design thinking
  3. Provide better tools/reduce barriers to quality
  4. Create a better context/align incentives
