  7. 7. viii Preface Open Knowledge Resources (OKR) or open educational resources are freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, educational, assessment and research purposes. The development and promotion of OKR is propelled by a desire to curb the commercialization of knowledge on one hand and an aim to provide an alternative platform for learning through use of a spectrum of technologies converging for new media in e-learning. In the recent years the idea of OKR has emerged as a new dimension of educational initiatives to put ‘knowledge’ in the public domain through various platforms including the Internet. With convergence of technologies and a global trend to offer at least a part of the vast storehouses of knowledge from traditional institutions like MIT, Oxford etc. have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use and re-purposing by others. OKR is thus not only focuses on the “open access” issues in educational resources but also deals with the plethora of new technologies and types of media that deliver text, audio, images, animation, and streaming video, and includes technology applications and processes such as audio or video tape, satellite TV, CD-ROM, and computer-based learning, as well as local intranet/ extranet and web-based learning. While advocates of open access to learning and knowledge resources vouch for freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, educational, assessment and research purposes, the economics of ‘open’ resources are still a resolved debate. Generating digitized contents, their processing and storage costs huge amount of money even with the decreasing prices of hardware and software. The question often asked: who pays or will pay for it to remain ‘open’? The antithesis of ‘commodification of knowledge’ sometimes challenges the traditional ideas of return on investment in business. Hence, an important theme of discussion has emerged in recent years that focuses on the marketing of knowledge resources. While marketing par se smacks of commercialization, it is nevertheless remains a broader issue that has to be resolved if the open knowledge movement has to sustain in the long run.
