OER - Winter 2014

  1. 1. Good and Bad Sides E. Holster
  2. 2. 1. Ability to change and adapt my course curriculum quarter by quarter means so much. With a printed textbook this could not happen as easily! 2. Creativity of many authors works over a few published authors sources to chose from provides the best curriculum for my students.
  3. 3.  3. Allow faculty tools to gain control over learning content and delivery.  4. Benefit of lifelong learning and growing for all.  5. Content/information can be disseminated world wide at a very low or no cost.
  4. 4.  If access were quicker and easier to locate OER more instructors would use it. Still cumbersome to use!  Quality and reliability can be questionable.  Faculty Acceptance of OER. Needs more education and training work.
  5. 5.  Dynamic birth in 2002 but still in infancy today. Has it lost its “new” edge? Not all OER’s meet ADA requirements
