Hi Gerry,

That's a comprehensive and well researched presentation. 

With reference to your question on substantive projects, I may have missed a reference to the OERu international initiative which was launched on 1 November last year

The OERu is a consortium of 30+ universities, colleges and polytechnics from 5 continents who will provide free learning opportunities using oER with pathways to gaining formal academic credit. The OERu is distinctive because courses are based entirely on OER linked to formal academic credit. The implementation of the OERu is a designated project of the UNESCO-COL OER Chair network. 

This may also be of interest to your audience - the OER Foundation run regular free online courses on Copyright, OERs and Creative Commons licensing. The Open Content Licensing for Educators course deploys a number of "MOOC-like" features. Registrations are open for the next iteration which starts on 5 February 2014.

Great to see the growing interest and support for OER among library professionals!

Cheers
Wayne
