Abstract

This chapter informs readers of recent developments with open educational resources (OERs) as well as the various advantages and challenges to the use of open access materials and repositories. This chapter explores examples of OER usage for instruction and research and discusses digital and instructional media relevant to open pedagogy and the technology-enabled democratization of learning. Finally, the chapter concludes with suggestions for advocacy of greater open access to benefit national and international dissemination of knowledge and the increase of societal use.
