ABSTRACT
This paper examined assessment of Open Educational Resources (OER) by students in selected Academic Institutions in Southwest Nigeria. A descriptive research design was used for this study and the instrument used for data collection was the questionnaire. The population of this study comprised two hundred and fifty two respondents from selected academic institutions and a stratified sampling technique was used to select respondents from each of the nine institutions investigated. This study assessed the use of Open Educational Resources by students in nine academic institutions in Nigeria which comprised (Federal, State and Private Universities; Polytechnics; and Colleges of Education) in Nigeria.

Findings illustrates that 40.5% of students do not use OER because they are not aware of OER. Male students use more OER than females. Finding indicates that 21.4% of students access OER through multimedia, while 32.5% of students access OER with their laptops because it is portable and convenient to move from one location to another. Analysis shows that Master degree students had 20.6% awareness of OER than other class of students.

Result shows that students of government owned institutions are more knowledgeable in OER as University of Lagos have the highest with 15.1% through types of institutions. Analysis from Federal Government owned institutions such as (university, polytechnic and college of education) indicates a high percent of 41.3% which may be due to the fact that Federal Government institutions possess the bests of scholars because years of training and experience on the job, and interaction between lecturers and students from different states, culture and religion in Nigeria.
