          Abstract

          Most South African higher education students face a persistent challenge regarding their learning materials’ cost, relevance and comprehensibility. Their prescribed textbooks are usually expensive, authored in the Global North, and written in English, which is often students’ second or third language.This can exacerbate long-standing economic, epistemological and linguistic inequalities.

          One response has been for local educators to explore the potential of open educational resources (OER) to mitigate, if not overcome, these challenges for their students. But how would OER do that?
