On 5-6 May I attended the annual Open Educational Resources (OER) conference in the UK OER17 in London. It was a great chance to catch up with that part of the vibrant open education community. It was also a good chance to walk around the Bloomsbury area of London where I used to work a few years ago on open education projects with the UAL. On the first day I presented on the general applications of web annotation technology to support open education – which are considerable in my opinion, ending the presentation with a description of how Clipper could support open education. The talk was entitled ‘You Me Them and Everybody’ a famous line from a 1960’s song that featured in the The Blues Brothers Film. There seemed to be a lot of interest – which was very encouraging.
