Open Education Resources are online resources that are available for others to use to support learning.  They are part of a worldwide movement to promote and support sustainable educational development – the use of the term ”OER” is attributed to a UNESCO workshop in 2002. The sharing of open educational materials is in line not only with University of Edinburgh’s mission but also with a global movement in which research-led institutions play a significant role.

Commonwealth of Learning - Perspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational Resources and Change in Higher Education: Reflections from Practice

Commonwealth of Learning - Perspectives on Open and Distance Learning: Open Educational Resources and Change in Higher Education: Reflections from Practice | Open Educational Resources in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In the last decade in particular, the promotion, sharing and use of open educational resources (OER) have been growing exponentially.

The concept of OER has multifaceted dimensions and implications. For educational institutions, the dimensions are legal, managerial, financial, technical, technological and pedagogical; for practising educators, at stake are ways of teaching that are normative, together with a sense of identity that is both personal and professional. It would be astonishing if research, which by its very nature must be clearly focussed, were able to keep abreast of all such aspects of OER.
