The paper presents the result of a multilingual empirical survey on the ‘micro level factors’ of using, creating sharing and reusing open educational resources. It starts from the assumption that current models of OER integration are often lacking factors to support the creation of a sustainable open educational practice culture in organizations. This results into a low absorption capacity: Even if OER then are available and accessible in an organization, they are often not used. Micro level factors for integration of OER into teaching and learning on basis of the results of an empirical survey are presented and interpreted. They are used to enhance the OER logic model(s) into an “enhanced OER logic model” which, in addition to create equalized access, is capable of creating a culture of open educational practices, as well.
