ABSTRACT
Open Education Resources (OER) in higher education is reaching new platforms around the world. In this paper I would like to explore the success and challenges that higher education face when adopting an OER platform. This paper will allow the reader to look outside the walls of a centralized learning environment and gain a broader perspective on free information, knowledge and education used around the world.
