- Certainly the quality of education as a result of open education resource not only improves but widens the opportunity to get updated information within minutes by a click of a mouse and internet access.
- For poorly resourced education material countries, this approach is beneficial to every learner if access is made available
- For learners who need to explore further than what the teacher can offer in classroom, open education resources seems supportive.
Though the open learning system benefits learners and teachers to improve content of learning, the traditional school of thought on acknowledging people's hard work is likely to receive less significance in terms of research achievement and individual contribution to academic developments.
Point 2 There needs to be another built-in system that could be used to upload information, while the open learning system could be used primarily by individuals to download information and develop materials for teaching and learning.
One of the issues here is reaching consensus in a timely way. If you have a group of collaborators with widely differeing views it might take a long time to get a consensus on any one point and if new ideas and views are continuously being added to a resource, the realisation of a new product might take a long time.
Collaborative authoring is a good idea as it enables more than one person to check the accuracy, and validity of a resource
