  • A study with 1218 academicians

  • Copright is the most rated barrier

  • Instructors want their materials to remain unchanged when they are reused

    • Or they want to be informed

  • lack of institutional policies and incentives

  • Technology does not seem a barrier

  • Still OCW/OER not much known by many Turkish academicians

  • We asked another grant (~$12M) for 3 more years: 750 courses

  • More course materials, simulations and smart courses

  • Legal issues, e.g. Creative Commons

  • The target is 2023 open courses in the year of 2023 (100th anniversary of Turkish Republic)
