Open Educational Resources myth busting #yam

Criticism of Open Educational Resources is diverse, motivated by varying uncertainties and anxieties, but also vested interests. Some of this criticism is justified and points to areas which need further work on the part of the OER community, or refer to specific OER projects. One of the areas that, in our opinion, does need more work, is research that would provide objective information and evidence to decision makers. However, much of the criticism is rooted in fallacies that simply need to be explained.

We have designed this guide to OER myth- busting to help others navigate through common misconceptions about OER. It is mainly written with other OER activists in mind, who might have to deal with similar myths. The guide will also be helpful for educators, who have learned about OER and are looking for practical answers to their questions.
