Commentary by Stephen Downes

Discussion of the employment of open educational resources (OERs) at institutions focusing on both creation and use. "If use and creation do add emotional ownership and reduce a barrier of non-attachment to shared resources, then a ratio of use:creation could be useful for measuring OER adoption at an institution. The small gap between OER use and OER creation could be a possible indicator of healthy adoption of OER." See also more articles from the most recent edition of IRRODL.
