lessons learnt
Lessons learnt
  • The development of OERs provides an opportunity to engage a wide sector of partners
  • Social media enables effective promotion of OERs and increased uptake
  • Translation of OERs is a realistic and valuable option to increase international use
  • Repurposing existing texts as OERs is feasible and enables rapid generation of content
future publishing models
Future publishing models
  • Some third-party materials are licensed by their publisher for inclusion in a designated OER. The presence of the materials raises awareness of the source texts and favourable ratings can add to the reputation of the source; books sales increase.
  • Sections or chapters of popular textbooks are made available in appropriate formats free of charge under an open licence. These contain links to the rest of the textbook, which is available on standard terms.
  • OER of mixed origin (mashed up third party materials, perhaps licensed under Creative Commons Attribution Only) have embedded links indicating how to buy the original sources; and/or agreement is reached whereby materials from publishers are mashed up in new ways to create new ‘published works’ that publishers can charge for.

Scenarios generated by Hugh Look of Rightscom for the PublishOER project and made openly available on the project blog.
