Improving the quality of educational resources (Open Educational Resources: A Catalyst for Innovation)

This chapter investigates how open educational resources (OER) can help facilitate the continual improvement of educational resources. This is largely made possible through the adaptability of OER. The presented cases show that the flexibility of OER leads to the need to rethink quality assurance mechanisms. The final section of the chapter discusses the possibilities of using both more open quality assurance mechanisms and applying standards to ensure that what is learnt using OER is recognised in formal education.
