Author(s): Syed Meeraj Ahmad Rizvi
Abstract: Open educational resources have gained very much attention after their evolution in 2002 in a forum of UNESCO. A worldwide action has been taken on its creation and sharing. Although the government in collaboration with institutions is running many projects to create and share open educational resources worldwide as research shows, there is still very little awareness about open educational resources among users. Many people are unaware of the licensing mechanism under which an open educational resource is released on a public platform. In this research paper, the researcher has tried to explore the advantages of Open educational resources over printed resources and find out the major challenges which are faced while using open educational resources.
