Open education acts as a bridge to formal education, and is complementary, not competitive, with it (Open education acts as a bridge to formal education)

Summary: Students can use OER to make informed choices about further study, and when OER is closely aligned with courses and an institution, it can act as an effective recruitment tool, encouraging learners to transition from informal to formal study. Increasingly formal learners are also using OER to supplement their education.
