AbstractSome constant issues in the development of OER have been the fragmented nature of what gets developed, the variable quality and the questions about suitability of older content. To compound these problems, OER is generally spread across a number of servers world wide that may not have good sustainability, and are thus subject to risk of being lost.
In the presentation, I present MoodleNet as an Open Edtech solution, developed by Moodle, that attempts to address these problems using the power of the crowd on an federated system to distribute the work, distribute the risk, and improve the signal-to-noise ratio experienced by any educator or student searching for open educational resources.
