Clear-Eyed Analysis of OER Impact - Doug Lederman, Inside Higher Ed

A thorough new report from Achieving the Dream offers a modulated assessment of what the OER Degree Initiative accomplished in its first two years, through fall 2017. It shows that the program has stimulated the 38 participating two-year colleges and their instructors to create scores of low- or no-cost materials for courses (numbers that are accelerating as time passes, as a news release at the end of the 2017-18 academic year shows), saving students at least $1.4 million. (The project has also embraced a more conservative methodology for calculating students' savings on digital course materials, contributing to a trend toward more realistic accounting of such figures.) https://www.insidehighered.com/digital-learning/article/2018/08/29/clear-eyed-review-impact-initiative-create-oer-degrees
