Li, Y, MacNeill, S., and Kraan, W. (undated) Open Educational Resources – Opportunities and Challenges for Higher Education Bolton UK: JISC_CETIS
This briefing paper will not provide anything new for those already familiar with open educational resources, but is a very useful briefing paper that can handed to those in post-secondary education who know nothing about OERs (yes, there are still a few). It also provides a useful list of OER initiatives. The most interesting statement:
It seems impossible to really understand the significance of the OER movement by simply examining what it does. Its significance lies in what it is trying to achieve and the way in which it attempts to achieve it.
Talk about damned with faint praise!
