Who needs a publisher?

Week 5 of #okmooc

The Stanford University online course OpenKnowledge Changing the Global Course of Learning fall 2014 has proceeded to module 5 in week 5.

We have seen a video of John Willinsky. In the courseware discussion forum I have posted a lengthy evaluation.

Bottom line about 'open access' for me this week: everyone can self publish on the WorldWideWeb. Who needs a publisher? Among my classmates I have identified ten who have started a digital project for this course. Those are on the most ambitious track for this course regarding statement of accomplishment.

In the table below you'll find links to their projects. These people come from eight different countries from four continents. I really have to identify classmates from Asia and Australia with their digital projects to claim that I'm in a global class:)
