I submitted my masters thesis on September 2, 2011. The thesis titled ‘Student perceptions of the reuse of digital educational materials: A case study of the social outreach group SHAWCO’, explores the potential for the open education movement to assist social outreach programmes. Up until now the open education movement has seen strong growth in the supply side of openly available educational content, but an understanding of how that content may actually be useful to organizations has gone largely under researched.
I now await the review of my work by external moderators. After scrambling to print and bind four copies of the work, I enjoyed a glass of champagne with my dear colleagues! Thanks to everyone for their support.
