Efficiency savings in reusing health OER

Type: Evidence | Hypothesis: OER saves money | Polarity: | Sector: | Country:

By adapting virtual students and openly licensed OERs, there was a time saving, if the health systems were close enough in context:

“It only took approximately one hour to repurpose a case from the linear system to an English adapted linear model, but then to develop a branching model it took approximately 10 hours more.

Clearly though it is still a saving of time (by repurposing; in comparison with a de novo creation (estimated at 10-120 hours)”
