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…

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).

Taylor, Josie – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013
Online learning is now achieving recognition as offering a way for learning to scale. However we need to learn from the experiences in distance learning institutions. The Open University was established over 40 years ago and offers a unique experience in building a distance learning organisation on innovative use of media, originally through…

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…

Macintyre, Ronald – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013
At the Open University in Scotland "openness" is part of our sense of self; our engagement with Open Educational Resources and Practices (OER/OEP) seems obvious. In this paper we explore some of those obvious aspects and using our partnership with a third sector organisation explore some of the less apparent aspects of openness. In…

Weller, Martin – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2012
The nature of openness in education has transformed from just relating to open access to encompass a wide range of interpretations. This paper explores the concept of an "open scholar" whose practice is shaped by digital and networked technologies. It is argued that openness represents an effective working method in this environment, and…

Pegler, Chris – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2012
The list of barriers and enablers that influence the use of open educational resources (OER) is extensive. Factors and influences relating to reuse may have been noted within projects, operating within a short time span, or within specific conditions which limit generalizability. Evidence of reuse in practice has often emerged as isolated examples…

Brent, Isabelle; Gibbs, Graham R.; Gruszczynska, Anna Katarzyna – Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2012
The field of Social Research Methods is shared not only by the social sciences, but by many other disciplines. There is therefore enormous scope for the creation and re-use of open educational resources (OERs) in this area. However, our work with social scientists on a number of recent projects suggests that barriers exist to OER creation and use…
