You found some online stuff to incorporate into a class – so what? Proponents of open educational resources (OER) often focus on cost reduction as the key benefit and rationale for adoption of open content. While OER has been demonstrated as an effective savings strategy, the potential of open content goes further. This presentation presents an analysis of what “open” really means, and a discussion of OER’s potential to make a real difference at many organizational and policy levels. Using current policy examples and parallels with free and open-source software (F/OSS) development, it examines leverage available to OER adopters and suggests practices for educators at all levels of decision-making authority. #TCCSoWhat
