This video resource is a valuable contribution to promoting Open Educational Resources (OER) for educators to understand how teaching material can be produced and shared. Dr Juan Klopper's willingness to share his expertise and passion with the wider world is an example of good practice where knowledge is for the public good. This video can be an inspiration to other educators to open up their classrooms and to be a producer of OER. In addition it encourages students to realize the flexibility gained from a flipped classroom approach to learning. Dr Klopper's popular website with YouTube teaching tutorials in Surgery, Mathematics and Physics and video edits has been viewed by over 160,000 people worldwide (August 2013).
