Can OER be of high quality if it is free?


#1

Yes, OER can be of high quality just like any copyrighted resource. It is important not to confuse the free availability of OER with the cost of their production, which is often borne by philanthropic organizations, government, universities, or professional societies. Peer reviews of OER serve as an additional check on their quality.
