CountryBrazil

ABSTRACT
This presentation highlights the main drivers and barriers in the production, use, reuse and sharing workflow of OER provision and take-up, to include sustainability aspects of OER implementation at an institutional level. Mostly, the discussion builds upon the experiences of the Open University own OER initiative, OpenLearn, but also of some of its collaborating partners. This presentation brings data from research and provides a perspective into the emerging international policy implications and recommendations of the field.
