Good post on the sustainability of OERs that reaches what was effectively my own conclusion when I studied the same issue a few years ago: "Unlike purchasing computers or licensing an LMS, with OER we are not buying a solution, we are building a solution. In doing so we are investing in the people of the institution, and can obtain a new kind of ownership: a grassroots, shared ownership of the learning materials cultivated by access to and encouragement of open and shared learning resources."
