To share or not to share

So after participating in ONL161 I am now learning more about OER – open educational resources by participating in a course named “Learning to (re)use open educational resources”. It is all free and I made friends with four other participants tonight in the discussion forum. The course is a part of…

“The ExplOERer Project, co-funded by the European Commission under the Erasmus+ programme to promote OER sustainability through OER adoption and re-use in professional practice”.

To share is a human right as I see it. But does it have to be me? There are many fears to consider. Is my material good enough to share with others? What if someone thinks I have low quality of for instants my recordings? It is easier to reuse what someone else has done – to consume and not produce. This will be a challenge for me – to dare to go public!
