Ma Voie Économique offers online career counseling for high school students interested in studying economics, science and technology management, and social sciences.
The cost-effectiveness of OER is often noted as an advantage of adopting an open licensing model, although it has been separately argued that there is little substantiated evidence to support this notion. Many existing OER services were established with “one-off” initial funding and based on an altruistic notion of opening resources worldwide. The authors of this publication consider that an analysis of this area is thus particularly important if the OER movement wishes to have a lasting and sustainable effect on educational practices.
Creating high-quality learning resources ab initio is expensive, but Neil Butcher and Sarah Hoosen present compelling evidence that using OER can reduce this cost substantially. They also present some startling analyses of the economics of textbook production, which again show that systematic processes of investing in OER can create huge savings for governments and students. The commercial publishing industry can play a part in this process.
