Mark works in the area of open and collaborative resources. Mark manages the Siyavula project, where he co-ordinates the development of a comprehensive set of Open Educational Resources (OER) supporting the South African National Curriculum. This relies on the development of communities to create and support the OERs as well as the provision of platforms for development.
Mark believes in the liberation of information and supporting education in South Africa.
Twice a year we award a number of small grants to a collection of social change agents, no strings attached, in support of their work. We call these Flash Grants and recipients are selected based on nominations from our Fellows. Each award is worth $5,000.
