Don Gorges __I wonder which print & online commercial textbooks, specifically, Canadian Editions, BCcampus could benchmark in providing comparisons with “compelling alternatives” – short-list likely includes Pearson Canada’s Geosystems: An Introduction to Physical Geography, Third Canadian Edition, Robert W.

Don Gorges __ At Creative Commons, “The key question is, do the policies governing the procurement and distribution of publicly funded materials ensure the maximum benefits to the citizens those policies are meant to serve?”__ In Ontario the answer is Yes, that is Ontario Policy — and it is Curriculum Services Canada – CSC Seal Quality Assurance _ http://www.curriculum.org/content/quality-assurance-5GUVC __ See the peer-review nature of the Reviews of BCCampus Open Textbooks _ http://open.bccampus.ca/find-open-textbooks/?subject= less

Don Gorges __When Catherine Casserly stepped down as Creative Commons CEO, September, 2013, she “predicted that the next CEO will play a major role in scaling Creative Commons’ achievements. “We’re currently developing products and tools with the potential to transform how sharing and collaboration work on the internet. Realizing that potential will require a CEO who deeply understands both our mission and the broader technology landscape.” _ https://creativecommons.org/weblog/entry/39874 less
