'Eyes that Survey the World': the latest data snapshot from OER Research Hub
“Over the course of an entire semester all the kids turned in on 
average 82% of their homework, which is significant for me as an 
instructor because that made me feel that what I was asking 
them to do at home, (…) whatever it happened to be, that they 
saw the meaning in doing that.” 
“The greatest impact comes when I share the MERLOT website with 
students. They instantly connect with others who share their best practices. 
Then they develop their own best practices to share with their students and 
colleagues. There is such a great ripple effect when people are willing to 
share; especially when the information is easy to locate.”

86.3% of educators adapt OER to suit their needs

“What I do is I look at a lot of free resources but I don’t usually 
give them directly to my students because I usually don’t like 
them as much as something I would create, so what I do is I get 
a lot of ideas.” 
“The problem where I teach now is that 
we have no money; my textbooks, my 
Science textbooks are 20 years old, 
they’re so outdated, they don’t relate to 
kids (...) so I pick and pull from a lot of 
different places to base my units.” 
“I will maybe look and find an 
instructional video that’s maybe 2 
or 3 minutes long that gets to the 
point better than I could, and I 
would use it, or I will look for 
lessons and if they are for Grade 
5 or Grade 3 I don’t use all of it, I 
just adapt it, I take out what I 
don’t want and rearrange it.”
• I’ve created resources 95% 
• I’ve created resources and published them online 44% 
• I’ve created resources and published them online under 
a CC license 5%
Reflection 
Photo CC BY-NC-SA 2.0 https://flic.kr/p/p3ABbW
‘I use a broader range of teaching and learning tools’ 40.6% 
‘I reflect more on the way that I teach’ 37% 
‘I have broadened my coverage of the curriculum’ 36.7% 
‘I more frequently compare my teaching with others’ 32.1%
“It used to be that when I thought about preparing for a lesson I would 
look at a book and see what they did and I then would 
kind of teach a lesson similar to it but now I can go online 
watch a video or look at somebody else’s material that they put out there, 
see what they’re doing and either modify what they’re doing and bring it 
into my classroom or just get a totally different perspective on it and 
allow my students to get multiple perspectives on a 
topic.”

Do students save money using OER? 
%
Do institutions save money using OER? 
%
“Without any doubt my students are saving money! Only 
one has purchased a copy of the textbook - everyone else 
uses their laptop, tablet, or prints out what they want.” 
“Down the road they may. Students talk to other potential 
students. When they find out that teachers care about cost 
and readability, they are more likely to choose your college” 
“Since we are all using online version, the school saves a 
lot of paper and money”

57% of informal learners already have a degree 
31% of formal learners used OER to try university-content 
level before signing up for a paid-for course 
88.4% of all learners choose OER for the opportunity to 
study at no cost

  • 12. “Over the course of an entire semester all the kids turned in on average 82% of their homework, which is significant for me as an instructor because that made me feel that what I was asking them to do at home, (…) whatever it happened to be, that they saw the meaning in doing that.” “The greatest impact comes when I share the MERLOT website with students. They instantly connect with others who share their best practices. Then they develop their own best practices to share with their students and colleagues. There is such a great ripple effect when people are willing to share; especially when the information is easy to locate.”

Only one has purchased a copy of the textbook - everyone else uses their laptop, tablet, or prints out what they want.” “Down the road they may. Students talk to other potential students.
