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.
The competition received over 60 qualified entries. The judges included a panel of experts including Davis Guggenheim, Nina Paley, Liz Dwyer, Anya Kamenetz, Angela Lin, Mark Surman and James Franco (sadly we’re told Mr. Franco did not come to Blink Tower to personally deliver the winning cheque).
Please join us in celebrating with Blink Tower for helping to explain to the world why Open Education truly does matter.
