ABSTRACT
Since 2002 when the Massachusetts Institute of Technology sparked the Open Educational Resources (OER) movement with the OpenCoursewareProject, few colleges or universities have pushed the envelope in determining the full potential of OER on teaching and learning. We believe that to realize the full potential of OER, colleges and universities must move beyond pockets of innovation, where OER is utilized only for select courses, and scale efforts to full OER programs. The support of trustees, CEOs, and their leadership teams is essential to realizing the full potential of OER.
