This keynote presentation was made by Martin Poulter of the University of Bristol at RepoFringe 2016. The following introduction appeared on the RepoFringe website: "Dr Martin Poulter is the past Wikimedian In Residence at the Bodleian Libraries, Oxford, past Wikimedia Ambassdor for Jisc, and promotes open education in the Economics Network based at the University of Bristol. * “Your OERs will outlive you: Open Education in the long term” – Day 1 at 09.45. This talk is about the seeming paradox of the long-term sustainability of educational resources which need continuous evolution to stay relevant. The preservation of the utility of educational content is more challenging than just preserving that content. I will defend a web-of-knowledge approach rather than an atomistic approach. In the increasing ubiquity of these webs of knowledge justifies optimism about the sustainability of open educational resources and communities."
