Direсtly defend or dispute your сlassmate’s response to the statement on society’s interests and open resources (Wiley, Bliss, & McEwen, 2014, p. 782).
Ask additional probing or clarifying questions pertaining to their predictions for the use of open source material in the future.
Share an insight you gained from reading the colleague’s posting and study.

For this discussion, I agree with the statement that society’s interests are maximized when intellectual property is shared freely, with proper attribution, for
noncommercial purposes. My reason behind supporting this statement is reflected in the system of educational learning and the ability to grow and expand knowledge
through a professional collaboration of experts in the field of study. As reflected in the ability to create a strong, robust body of knowledge, part of the foundation
of intellectual property resides in the its free cost and the four permissions, reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute (Wiley, 2010). Being able to reuse content
allows for individual growth to ones’ own knowledge about a topic or research study. By revising, remixing, or adding to content, knowledge becomes unrestricted in its
depth of richness. This allows for a redistribution of new knowledge and material that further strengthens Open Educational Resources (Wiley, Bliss, & M McEwen, 2014).
In analyzing open source material, it is necessary to identify and understand the meaning of open access resources. Open access is not restricted by copyright or the
exclusivity of the legal given right to the owner/originator of a work. It is free and available to all who wish to review and use the source. Allowing resources to
have open access encourages modifications and enhancements to the source to improve it further (Hatzipanagos & Gregson, 2015). This creates a more hearty and rich
source of knowledge from which an individual can research and learn. I predict that as open source materials grow, it will be necessary to continue to vet resources
for authenticity and veracity to make them an integral part of the vast open resource network.
Additionally, Creative Commons, a non-profit organization, focuses on expanding the range of creative works available to legally share and build upon to further global
collaboration (Creative Commons, n.d.). By increasing the wealth of knowledge that is available and improving or adding to a knowledge base, eLearning will continue to
be a formidable component of education and learning. It has been my personal experience that eLearning and the availability of open resources has created an
environment where I was able to obtain my Bachelors, Masters, and now Doctorate in a completely immersive online environment. I believe that eLearning will continue to
grow and evolve into a dynamic interface where learning and learners are completing educations in an online forum but experiencing the interaction and collaboration
that is present in traditional brick and mortar institutions.
