As we launch our new series of ‘First Wednesday of Every Month’ webinars, you are all invited to join Martin Weller on April 6th at 16.00 GMT / 11.00 EST / 08.00 PST to discuss ‘Identifying categories of OER users’.

The Open Educational Resource (OER) movement has been successful in developing a large, global community of practitioners, in releasing high quality learning material and influencing policy. It now stands at the cusp of mainstream adoption, which will require reaching different audiences than hitherto. In this talk, the findings of the OER Research Hub are used to identify three categories of OER user: OER active, OER as facilitator and OER consumer. These groups have different requirements of OER and thus varying strategies would be required to meet their needs if mainstream adoption was to be realised.

To access the event, please go to the following address: https://oufm.open.ac.uk/fm/950c03-5915

The webinar will be recorded. Once the meeting has been completed, the replay will be available on the same url used to access the live session.
