This presentation is based on work within OLnet (http://olnet.org) to consider ways in which Open Educational Resources (OER) can have impact in education. It looks at the ways in which the field has developed and the current Key Challenges (http://ci.olnet.org) as well as future trends. Three potential impact areas for OER are picked out as the power for change, viral learning, and the evidence hunt around OER.Presentation by Patrick McAndrew for SCORE event on Learning from Research (http://www.open.ac.uk/score).CC-BY
