  4. 4. Additional benefits for institutions:  Little/no cost to distribute  Supplemental or stand-alone  Showcases talent/expertise  Dialogue across global market substantially increased  Marketing and branding potential increased  Circulation spanning ~ global  Increased scalability
  5. 5. Challenges  Internet access and speed not a viable option for many geographic locations  Quality of work is unknown  Timely updating of materials may not occur  Students may miss out on human interaction & dialogue
  6. 6. Challenges in higher education  Resource overload  Continual revisions, based on subject matter  Changing mindset of instructors and administration  Time constraints to create, find & modify existing OER  Professional development needed
  7. 7. Pitfalls of oer  Saturation over time, however for the present, can be a useful marketing tool for institutional programs.  Initial time, technical & personnel investment, however, over time a monetary savings is recognized.  Competing repositories will make OER more difficult to locate.  Quality of materials available may not share the same standards.
