Landscape of OER Strategic Challenges and Opportunities

As the quantity and quality of OER increases, a range of issues to improve author education, funding coordination, and a series of issues around attribution are among those that need addressing. This session is about planning for success by identifying challenges that are likely to arise as more authors, funders, and users engage with OER. When the lid of copyright constraint is removed, other policies will bear the brunt of regulating reuse - such as conformity with educational standards. In other cases, as updating OER becomes distributed, complex attribution issues around apportioning credit for versions 3, 4, and 5 of OER need to be anticipated and addressed.
