Report: OER Continues Moderate Growth Track

Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:10 am

While open educational resources (OER) are making headway in higher education classrooms, it’s slow going. That’s what a recent survey by the Babson Survey Research Group found when it queried 2,711 teaching faculty members within U.S. colleges and universities.¬†On the positive side, awareness and adoption have grown from previous years. Use of open-licensed textbooks has risen from 5 percent in 2015-2016 to 9 percent the following year. Also, awareness of OER is up by a third in 2016-2017 compared to 2014-2015. In the latest year of the survey, 30 percent of respondents said they were “aware” or “very aware” of OER; two years prior only 20 percent said the same.
