    The research conducted for this guide has shed light on the limitations and narrow scope of OER efficacy research to date. This learning serves as a resounding call to action, aimed at motivating educators, administrators, and other stakeholders involved in OER initiatives to contribute significantly to this critical area of study.

    It’s abundantly clear that while the existing body of research on OER efficacy has some benefit, we can delve deeper into the impact of OER and leverage this impact to create structural changes in education more broadly.
