Open Education Week 2014; Thoughts on the free flow of information

If knowledge itself is an organism, what do its vein and blood represent? – I asked myself today morning. My mind did not have any doubt in visualizing information channels as veins and flow of information as blood. 

Okay, then what about license and fees? When you engage mechanisms in these veins to restrict the flow in terms of money and rights, it would become a block in the vein that may lead to the collapse of the organism. 

Fine, now it means to me that free flow of information is the most important thing with respect to ‘Open Education’. What do you think?

In this open education week, let us think aloud about the need and possibilities of open education and do something that will help the people all over the world to be successful in their quest for leaning.
