Case Study about Business Models in Open Educational Resources (OER): a Contingency Approach
Abstract: This Case Study present an analysis of data from a literature review and semi-structured interviews with experts on OER, to identify different aspects of OER business models and to establish how the success of the OER initiatives is measured.The results collected thus far show that two different business models for OER initiatives exist, but no data on their success or failure is published. We propose a framework for me asuring success of OER initiatives.
