Hello all, here's some info about a report from a Nordic/Baltic 
initiative, Nordlet, which may be of interest to you.

> /The report /*Open Educational Resources in Denmark, Status Report 
> 2010*/ aims at establishing a contemporary status of Open Educational 
> Resources (OER) offered in Denmark. Based on samplings from portals

> searches, the report offers observations on where and how to find OER, 
> media use in OER, and OER offers and potential at different 
> educational levels.
>
> From the observations, initiatives for creating OER and profiling them 
> for public awareness and use are scattered and arbitraty. Finding OER 
> for specific purposes is possible but in many cases unnecessarily 
> difficult. A stronger awareness of OER and their potential for 
> learning contexts may be emerging, and is called for.

Just glancing through it a couple of observations from the summary 
caught my eye:

"* OER with high levels of interactivity where user input has consequences
(such as games, simulations), are mainly targeted at school children, and
rapidly disappear from the larger picture in concurrence with higher age
and educational levels"

- This rings true to me for UK and educational resources in general, at 
least from the HE point of view. I guess it's because of cost of 
producing such interactive resources and the increasingly specialized 
topics and thus smaller target audience for each resource. But perhaps 
that is an reason for collaborating within subject communities to 
produce/enhance OER where commercial options would have to be too expensive.

"* Fully open OER where content can be added or modified, or setups can be
changed, are virtually non-existent."

- We may have said this in the UK a not many years ago, but I think not now.
