Open Educational Resources in Russia have relatively slow development.

A standardized and inflexible system of higher education also does not help to raise awareness about them and apply them on a permanent basis fast enough. Nevertheless, they have a potentianl and there is an urge to use them with the rise of technology applied in education and communicative culture.

Some of the best russian higher education institutions have been cooperating on their level to create prospectibe platforms and sharing opportunities for the knowledge. New OER implementing models are being used and some successful approaches are being adopted. Acting within the law and educational standards takes hard work and there are resource-intensive projects that not every university could afford. Hence, they need more governmental support and collaborative, benchmarking efforts from leaders of the field.

The authors of the presentation, as both students and workers of russian higher education system, have been interested and eager to be the ones researching the scope and forms of application of OER in higher education of Russia, their grey areas and issues, tendencies and requirements for the successful development of the potential of OER in Russia. So far, 30 of the best russian universities have been investigated through openness lens and we are ready to look through more and tell what we're finding and what good comes from it (from researching comes increasing awareness. The more we learn -- the bigger chance we have for positive change).

All in all it comes to what is practiced, therefore the authors have compiled and created OER implementation recommendations for russian educational governmental structures, higher education institutions, proffesional associations, teachers, practitioners, and students. Most of them might be considered for educational systems of the countries with similar characteristics (centralized, inflexible, conservative, slow-in-changing but capable and expanding in potential).

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand the situation with OER in developing countries and their educational systems on the example of Russia
  • Have in their hands practical guidelines of implementing and developing OER in higher education in different contexts
  • Be familiar with scope and approaches of openness in Russian universities
  • Discover new models of opening the education despite and within minimal support and hard-to-change educational system
