Disadvantages to consider:

  • Quality control: Most OERs have not been reviewed to the degree that would normally occur with a reputable publisher
  • Evaluation: The onus is on the academic to scrutinise and evaluate a product for accuracy and production quality
  • Focus: The majority of OER titles are US-centric
