Technology proliferation, has transformed higher education to a student controlled centered-based teaching and learning environment. The change of attitude towards the students by the institutions has shifted students' learning environment into a more active role as collaborators. This degree of openness through creating and developing of Open Educational Resource (OER) material can be more productive than the traditional learning environment, but main barriers related to copyright law should be addressed. Furthermore, research on comparative effectiveness is required to streamline and optimize the process, in addition to incorporating support of OER creation and development recognition into university policies.
