OER were envisioned to recognize quality, open-licensed content, and make it available to instructors. Carefully crafting lessons and materials is challenging and time consuming, which is why these libraries have spread. OER will allow more and more teachers to focus their energy in other aspects of a learning intervention, like following up with students in more care and detail. looks forward to gathering and organizing all the key facts and knowledge on OER to the benefit of everyone in the educational community. To date, over 100 threads cover all aspects of OER, from rationales for institutional implementation, pedagogy and capacity bulding matters, to OER advocacy and law.
