In general goals of using and adopting Open Educational Resources (OER) are to help equalize access to knowledge and educational opportunities across the world.

However, this is a rather wide-ranging goal as there are numerous factors (e.g. institutional settings) to consider.

Therefore, I would like to discuss with you the following: Regarding your standpoint and profession, what do you consider to be the goals of OER? For now and for the future?

Let me start with myself: I am working at the FernUniversitšt in Hagen, Germany, which is the only public distance teaching university. In my opinion, establishing a digital repository for researchers and students would be a great idea. There are many interesting ideas circulating around different institutions and within the university. However, one seldom comes across them before those ideas are being published in peer-reviewed journals. Providing free and unlimited access prior to a final version may enhance the quality of the papers and also enrich one owns ideas.
