Open Educational Resources Acceptance on the Rise

Press Release
Jan 25, 2019
Stamford, CT, January 25, 2019 — Growth in the adoption of open educational resources in U.S. K-12 classrooms has been continuous, if slow, and likely will continue in the future with acceleration over time, according to a new report from Simba Information, Use of Open Educational Resources in K-12 Schools 2018.

“Despite the challenges with using OER—like identifying and sustaining quality resources amid a plethora of available material—schools’ good experiences with OER likely will lead them to continue down that path, while positive feedback shared will encourage other educators to give OER a try,” said Kathy Mickey, a senior analyst and managing editor for Simba Information’s Education Group.

Use of Open Educational Resources in K-12 Schools 2018 details how U.S. school districts are using OER, the factors driving growth and the challenges presented. Additional information is provided about key providers of OER, including the role commercial publishers can play in the changing environment, and from case studies of districts and states that have integrated OER into their instructional materials mix.
