My chosen resources were generally easy to access (although they may not be suitable for people with additional needs) and of reasonable quality in terms of presentation and content.
Target audience are addressed in resources as 'students' – not a term used very often in the workplace and might alienate learners
Lack of standardisation in presentation might lead to some confusion or at least a feeling of 'amateurishness' and loss of credibility for learners
Not all of the sessions were exact fits, some were also 'contextualised' or 'situated' and referred to previous modules which could cause confusion
Impact on overall learning outcomes
Some adjustments made due to lack of appropriate materials available (targetted audience too young, materials too theoretical or topics simply not available.
Certainly the effort searching for materials was less than that required to create from scratch. Some time was wasted reviewing irrelevant resources, but that aside, I am certain that OER has a great deal of potential in the world of corporate training.
Since we were not given the task of providing scaffolding or e-activities to use alongside these materials, in line with a designated pedagogy, I do feel that it's difficult to give a proper appraisal of OER in this context.
