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. This paper reports on research intended to help fill that knowledge gap by conducting a…

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…

Bliss, T. J.; Robinson, T. Jared; Hilton, John; Wiley, David A. – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013
Despite increased development and dissemination, there has been very little empirical research on Open Educational Resources (OER).

Heinen, Richard; Kerres, Michael; Scharnberg, Gianna; Blees, Ingo; Rittberger, Marc – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2016
The paper describes the concept of a federated ecosystem for Open Educational Resources (OER) in the German education system. Here, a variety of OER repositories (ROER) (Muuß-Merholz & Schaumburg, 2014) and reference platforms have been established in the recent past. In order to develop this ecosystem, not only are metadata standards…

Fiedler, Sebastian H.D. – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2014
This article offers a critical reflection on the contemporary Open Educational Resource (OER) movement, its unquestioned investment in a collective "content fetish" and an educational "problem description" that focuses on issues of scarcity, access, and availability of quality materials. It also argues that OER proponents fail…

Beaven, Tita; Comas-Quinn, Anna; Hauck, Mirjam; de los Arcos, Beatriz; Lewis, Timothy – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013
One of the main barriers to the reuse of Open Educational Resources (OER) is language (OLnet, 2009). OER may be available but in a language that users cannot access, so a preliminary step to reuse is their translation or localization. One of the obvious solutions to the vast effort required to translate OER is to crowd-source the translation, as…

Browne, Tom; Holding, Richard; Howell, Anna; Rodway-Dyer, Sue – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2010
The degree to which Open Educational Resources (OER) reflect the values of its institutional provider depends on questions of economics and the level of support amongst its academics. For project managers establishing OER repositories, the latter question--how to cultivate, nurture and maintain academic engagement--is critical. Whilst…

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…
