Dear Fatima Thanks for creating this group! I think it is great! Maybe we can add a little image of our country's flag as part of the profile? What do you think? Ina

Glad to see that South Africa have a group on the open access site. Thanks Fatima. I've been thinking about how we can make a contribution to getting Open Access onto peoples agenda. Wondering if there is a place for us to put together a week’s programme. For example, we could ask the people from African Commons Project if they were interested in participating. We could also become members of the OpenCourseWare Consortium. I see that Udubs and UCT are the only South African members of the OpenCourseWare Consortium. Naturally we would also have a slot for FOSS and punt the African VLE #chisimba. Would also be interesting to get someone from to chat. Interested in hearing other ideas. I'm just throwing random thoughts around.
