This guide comprises three sections. The first – a summary of the key issues – is presented in the form of a set of frequently asked questions. Its purpose is to provide readers with a quick and user-friendly introduction to open educational resources (OER) and some of the key issues to think about when exploring how to use OER most effectively.
The second section is a more comprehensive analysis of these issues, presented in the form of a traditional research paper. For those who have a deeper interest in OER, this section will assist with making the case for OER more substantively.
The third section is a set of appendices, containing more detailed information about specific areas of relevance to OER. These are aimed at people who are looking for substantive information regarding a specific area of interest.
