Back in 2012, Open Educational Resources (OERs) seemed like the future of education. Five years later, educators are changing their minds. Teachers now don’t want to string together OERs from lots of different sources and the formative assessment possibilities offered by platform-based education programs (like those offered by Pearson) make hunting out an OER and using paper based assessments distasteful. To continue being the vanguard of educational technology, OERs will need significant work. You can read more about the uncertain future of OERs here.
