Our submission to the 14th International Conference on Computer Supported Education (CSEDU 2022), titled “Factors Influencing Co-Creation of Open Education Resources Using Learning Object Repositories” has been accepted and will be presented during the upcoming CSEDU 2022 conference.
The paper, in part, based on research conducted as part of a capstone project report, outlines a study conducted in order to investigate the use of Learning Object Repositories (LORs) in co-creation of OERs by educators. Using the Uses and Gratification theory, a survey was conducted with 36 educators in order to identify learning objects commonly used by educators and, additionally, to determine the factors that can positively influence educators to be co-creators of OERs. This work helped set the stage for a project currently being undertaken, which is aimed at designing and implementing an OER repository for archiving educational content in Zambia.
CSEDU, the International Conference on Computer Supported Education, is an annual academic event for presenting and discussing new educational tools and environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, and institutional policies on computer supported education including open and distance education. The event will be held between April 22–24, 2022.
