Abstract

Recent interest in Open movement research includes research into Open Educational Resources (OER) as one of the most prevalent topics. Current OER scholarship has investigated the factors affecting users’ acceptance and usability of OER rather than the factors influencing the development of OER repositories from the viewpoint of higher education providers. This paper contends that other factors significantly affect the development of Institutional Open Educational Resources (IOER) repositories, not just user adoption. A theoretical framework adapted from the Education Change theory (Fullan 2007) was employed to analyse collected data from 20 semi-structured interviews, with the aim of identifying and understanding factors affecting the development of IOER repositories in Vietnam. The empirical findings in this study corroborate the theoretical framework, demonstrating that the development of IOER repository is a complex and massive change process influenced heavily by a set of interconnected factors, especially contextual factors.
