I'd classify this paper as offering an example of the benefits of reusing 'cognitive surplus'. "the descriptive case studies illustrate how student-generated OER, guided by an OER development model, positively benefited learners and educators (and) balances these benefits against some of the challenges experienced in the process." The example is presented within a constructivist framework, which I don't think is strictly necessary, and which I don't think really advances the narrative (why do educational writers so often feel they need to select some or another theory or framework as a 'lens' through which to view the example?).
