Abstract

Open educational resources (OER) can be an effective tool in lowering student textbook expenses and bringing current material into the classroom, but come with many barriers for faculty related to time, expertise, motivation, standardized testing requirements, and subject matter differences. Given the number of potential challenges and problems with using OER, school administrators with distance learning programs should be proactive in helping faculty overcome those obstacles.
