Open Eductional Resources Benefits and Challenges

How will Open Educational Resources benefit me as a consumer?      OERs allow consumers of information to easily acquire, use, and alter the information to accommodate the consumer’s individual needs. OERs save time - no need to re-create something that already exists and is free to use OERs encourage self-improvement through self-learning OERs allow experts in the field to share their expertise with the world OERs give students a glimpse of a subject area that they my be interested in pursuing.

What are the challenges to using Open Educational Resources?  Lack of quality control  Anyone may submit open content whether they are experts or not; therefore, the level of quality will vary. Lack of student-teacher connection  Finding the right resource can be overwhelming and time consuming  The “textbook concept” of a course may be a “hard habit to break”    Students and teachers alike may still think that the course is the textbook. When, in reality, a course seldom follows the textbook from cover to cover. Since OER creators are not monetarily rewarded for sharing, there is no incentive for OER creators to continue to update their material.
