Adina is a Creative Commons certified librarian from Glendale community college USA. She is currently on an exchange program in Ghana. She is a librarian and an open education advocate.
The purpose of our meeting:
She wanted to learn more about our #OER projects and freedom of panorama in Ghana.
My meeting with her was personal and unofficial. We had a conversation on issues like freedom of panorama, the Ghanaian educational system, public universities versus private universities and the general cost of university-level education in Ghana.
Again, she commended the Ghanaian community for organising satellite events to promote Wikipedia and the sharing of free knowledge.
Some of the questions she asked were:
1. The challenges we face as a community
2. Our motivation as volunteers for #Wikipedia in Ghana
3. How popular is Creative Commons or open license in Ghana
4. Which sector/industry uses Creative Commons licenses most in Ghana
