Benefits and Challengs of Open Educaiton Resources

Benefits and Challenges of Open Education Resources (OER) Judy Ann Loveless-Morris Unless otherwise specified, this work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial 4.0 International License

Benefits • OERs are both affordable and accessible, and can therefore have the following effects: • Accountability: Students are more likely to participate beginning on the first day of class and materials cannot be lost, stolen, or misplaced. • Reduce Disparities: Reduce educational differences by race, college status (community college vs. universities), etc. • Possible Increased Retention as a result of lowered financial strain on students. • Collaborative efforts should improve the OERs available. • Gives educators freedom to tailor resources to their needs.

Challenges • Diversity: To my knowledge, OER seems to be limited to mostly English and Western Culture. Therefore, is it truly open and are the resources truly diverse? • Resistance: It may prove difficult to garner widespread support and adoption of OERs by teachers, instructors, and faculty. • Efficacy: Currently, no empirical evidence has demonstrated or supports many of the “benefits” of OERs. • Increased disparity? OERs seem to rely primarily on the internet. With the well-known digital divide, can OERs actually increase disparity? • Reduce student-faculty engagement? With the move to more and more online classes, including the use of videos and other OERS, will student-faculty interactions lessen?
