I’m unapologetic when it comes to advocating for free and open exchange of materials among colleagues. The recent move to Google Drive has finally made it easy to share tons of files in a wide circle with almost no effort. Anyone who is interested can make a public collection and drop anything they want in there (within the strictures of proper usage rights and attribution, of course). While I love my Dropbox, that sort of public sharing is not something that it does well.
So, I thought a little experiment was in order. The above link takes you to a form you can use to post your own public collection of educational materials. All collections that are posted get popped on a spreadsheet that is publicly accessible to anyone who cares. It’s easy.
In my dreams, this thing goes on for thousands of entries.
