THE PROS AND CONS OF OPEN EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES Jenn deLeón

BENEFITS  Cost – reduced costs for students     with low or no cost options Availability – educational resources available to those who typically would not have access Engagement – allows instructors to find/create their own content Licensing – Creative Commons Licensing and public domain options allow use of resources without breaking copyright rules Quality – allows contributions and review from many, raising the standards of the resources available

CHALLENGES  Cost – finding resources can be     time consuming; creating resources will require continued funding and time Availability – difficult to find resources for some disciplines Engagement – relative “newness” of OER means many do not understand it or its potential Licensing – creators of shared resources may be hesitant as Creative Commons licenses are non-revocable Quality – how to judge the quality and relevance of resources available
