Open Educational Resources (OERs) are freely available worldwide. Though sustainability (Downes, 2006) and production issues (Ferreira and Heap, 2006) have been discussed, more research is needed into how adopting OERs impacts on organisations. This paper will first report on how academics and teachers in ten institutions/organisations based nationally and internationally plan to use OERs with learners. Indeed, academics, teachers and facilitators are being encouraged to provide a wide variety of learning situations and experiences for the changing student population. The later discussion focuses on issues and possible changes required to internal procedures within organisations when OERs are adopted.
