Open Educational Resources and Higher Education

This paper has provided a simple and practical definition of OER as describing educational resources that are freely available for use by educators and learners, without an accompanying need to pay royalties or licence fees. It has, however, attempted to highlight that there is significant danger that the transformative potential of this powerful concept can easily be lost if this interpreted to mean either that OER will make content cheaper or that providing free content will, by itself, improve education.
