Sustainability Strategies for OER


Published on

Webinar given in partnership with Athabasca Universisty for Open Education Week 9-Mar-2015.

Open Educational Resources (OER) often start as pilot projects initiated by early innovators in higher education institutions. Others are initiated by government. Frequently these projects receive some kind of start up funding to get them going. This webinar explores sustainability strategies for making OER an ongoing integrated part of education. Strategies will explore key success factors to consider when implementing an OER initiative, strategies to build reuse in from the start, and strategies for building communities of users and contributors who collectively take on the roles of maintaining and enhancing OER on an ongoing basis. A business model approach to sustainability will also be outlined.
