OER Evidence Report 2013-14


This OER Research Hub report shows a picture that is encouraging, but also mixed. The two main hypotheses under investigation were (A) that OER improves student performance; and (B) that openly licenced material is used differently to other online material.

Awareness of OER and Creative Commons is growing, but OER repositories remain

relatively unused and unknown compared with the main three educational resource sites

of YouTube, Khan Academy and TED. This suggests that brand awareness of OER and

easy location is a major obstacle to overcome for the next generation of OER projects.
