This chapter attempts to answer the following four research questions: How are teachers’ attitudes towards OER situated in the context of teaching and learning? What are teachers’ motivations for using OER and sharing their work as OER?How do teachers perceive the quality of OER? What barriers to using OER do teachers perceive?
