Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Seal, Tim – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2016
In recent years India has shown a growing appetite for open educational resources (OER) and open educational practices (OEP). Despite this, there is a paucity of research on OER use and impact, the extensiveness of OEP, and attitudes towards openness in India.

Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Hemmings-Buckler, Alison; Seal, Tim – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2014
Arguably, the benefits of open educational resources (OER) are greatest in low- and middle-income countries, where they have the potential to increase access to learning for those who may otherwise be excluded. However, for OER to be truly useful to educators and learners they need to be adapted to suit the contexts in which they are to be…

Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Coughlan, Tony – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013
A core tenet of the open educational resources (OER) movement has long been that 'the world's knowledge is a public good' (Smith & Casserly, 2006, p.2) and should be available for everyone to use, reuse and share. However, this vision of openness and of the connection between OER and social justice, which McAndrew and Farrow…

Farrow, Robert; Pitt, Rebecca; de los Arcos, Beatriz; Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Weller, Martin; McAndrew, Patrick – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2015

Perryman, Leigh-Anne; Coughlan, Tony – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2014
A canyonesque gulf has long existed between open academia and many external subject communities. Since 2011, we have been developing and piloting the public open scholar role (Coughlan and Perryman 2012)--involving open academics discovering, sharing and discussing open educational resources (OER) with online communities outside formal education…

Law, Patrina; Perryman, Leigh-Anne – Distance Education, 2017
In 2013, the Open University (OU) in the UK launched a large-scale survey of users of its OpenLearn platform for open educational resources. The survey results revealed that OpenLearn is functioning as a showcase and a taster for the OU, thereby offering informal learners a bridge to formal education. In 2014 and 2015, the OpenLearn survey was…
