  1. 1. Open Education Resources The Benefits & Challenges
  2. 2. The Benefits  Cost savings for students  As a college course instructor, I see the cost of textbooks as a barrier for some students  Up to date information  With online materials, it will be less expensive and more efficient to update electronic texts and resources  Ease of Access  Students will be able to take courses from anywhere if the materials, lectures, and information are open access, lending more success to those who work part- time and have family commitments/constraints  Teachers/Instructors can utilize open access materials to build upon or improve their own courses  Improves the ability to collaborate and produce higher quality materials through peer review
  3. 3. The Challenges  Searching multiple sites for resources  Verification of classification of materials – Open, Public Domain or Copyrighted  The various classifications under Creative Commons  Convincing faculty to participate in Open Educational Resources  What are the incentives for them to share what they create?  Development of a convenient and reliable resource to verify if materials are available for use  Colleges/Universities providing technical and other support for faculty involved in developing/sharing OER coursework  Many higher education budgets do not allow for this type of support
