This is the link to the feedback received by email from Neil Butcher (OER Africa) on August 11, 2017:
(thanks for that Neil!)

Thanks for your comment. I have used “aborigines” instead of “aboriginal” to try not to be disrespectful. Not so sure if this is correct in English, but I tried a descriptive use of “people living originally in the place” (from the Latin word aborigĭnes). So I was not referring to a specific ethnic group. If this is respectful I would prefer to mantain the more simple word “aborigines”. Thanks again.

Ok. I got it. It is plural. Sorry. 🙂

We have used “licenses” in section 2.2 and “licence” here. I guess it is the difference between UK and US language. I guess we need to opt for one of them.

On the other hand, “whenever possible” or “whenever useful”? 🙂

For example, in this sentence it seems we are not assuming “degrees of openness” for OER… but a resource need to have the 5R in order to qualify as OER…

Is this a David Wiley statement or an OpenMed statement? In Section 2.2, paragraph 11, we have argued that there are degrees of openness and that there is a “continuum” of the open with regard to licenses … Is it a contradiction?

Correction?: Open Educational Resources (OER) and Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs).

When data are shared with human participants, new ethical challenges arise, related to the use of personal information, guarantees of privacy and / or anonymity, and so on. Would not it be interesting to briefly mention how to deal with these aspects or what tools and resources exist for this?

The module makes a very interesting and nuanced description of this continuum. I think it would be of interest to have a Summary Table that shows the different options (Copyright, Open License, Public Domain, etc.), with their basic characteristics. “Licensing and Copyright at a glance”.
