We are thrilled, thrilled thrilled, Cape Town based animated explainer video company Blink Tower won the Creative Commons’ Why Open Education Matters video competition. The competition launched in March 2012 and was designed to make creative videos that explained simply why Open Educational Resources — or “OER” matter.
A first for the continent almost 50 CC volunteers from more then 15 countries across Africa all meet up together in Entebbe Uganda. The CC Uganda team held host to us in their breathtaking country while we discussed Creative Commons and Africa. With the generous support from the Macarthur Foundation this was the first opportunity for many of us to put faces to names and a true opportunity to share successes and lessons amongst each other.
