Read this first. This site has one purpose – to bust myths about Open
Educational Resources! There are two parts – a mythbusting guide and a
quick introduction to OER. Both will help you find fast, simple and useful
answers to myths, statements and unsupported claims about how Open
Educational Resources (OER) do not work or do not suite educational systems
and environments. They do.

Criticism of Open Educational Resources is diverse, motivated by varied
anxieties and uncertainties, but also particular interests. Some of this
criticism is justified and points to areas which need further work on the
part of the OER community, or refer to specific OER projects. Still, much
of the criticism is rooted in fallacies that simply need to be explained.
