The fact that you are reading this lesson suggests that you have heard of open educational resources (OER). Currently, there is a lot of buzz about OER. Some see them as totally revolutionising how we bring learning materials into our education system and use them, while others see OER from a more pragmatic perspective. Before we start looking at OER, including their origin, benefits and challenges, it is important to consider the problems that we are facing today in education. While these problems range, in different countries, from lack of access to poor quality, there is a common thread in most: low availability of good-quality educational materials. Although learning materials are available, the cost of access in many locations is very high and increases each year.

In this lesson, we will explore OER in general to give you an understanding of what they are and who the key players are in the progress of OER. By the end of the lesson, you should be able to make an informed decision about the worth of OER and how they might add value to your work as an educator or materials developer. (From Author)
