Hi Dorothy:

The following resources might be useful:


    • Business case for OER:
      • increase access to education
      • provide students with an opportunity to assess and plan their education choices
      • showcase an institution’s intellectual outputs, promote it’s profile, and attract students
      • convert students exploring options into fee paying enrollments
      • accelerate learning by providing educational resources for just-in-time, direct, informal use by both students and self-directed learners
      • add value to knowledge production
      • reduce faculty preparation time
      • generate cost savings – (this case has been particularly substantiated for open textbooks)
      • enhance quality
      • generate innovation through collaboration
