OER Data Report (2013-2015)
The OER Research Hub was a three year project funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and based in the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University in the UK. The OER movement had just passed the decade mark when the project was initiated. There was a sense that although great work had been done in the implementation of OER globally during this period, research about their impact on teaching and learning was scarce. The aim of the project was to investigate many of the commonly held beliefs about the benefits of OER. It also had the intention of raising the profile of research in the OER community.
