dc.description.abstractThis article reports finding from a study with the students of Bangladesh Open University which replaced traditional textbooks prepared using in-house style with openly licensed books under creative commons (CC) license and other digital content such as video and audio lectures. BOU made a deliberate decision to make textbooks open for that were copyrighted under the Creative Commons license after adoption of OER Policy in 2014. This decision was based on the accessibility and flexibility in the delivery of course content provided by textbooks. In line with this the BOU developed a repository and subsequently it was upgraded through the technology support from Commonwealth Educational Media Centre for Asia (CEMCA). The Repository is now full operational and with motivation of assessing the impact of the OER repository, this study has been conducted. Main stakeholders of the OER repository are the students and in Besser et al. (1999) found while students generally view textbooks as an important element of their courses and it also help classes. Distance learners attend in the tutorial sessions, and the soft copy of the learning materials has been effective in the sessions as well. BOU provides hard copies of print which are normally delay in delivery. Therefore, the students are getting used to downloading texts from the repository. More students accessed open textbooks than had handed hard copies of textbooks. Higher grades were correlated with courses that used open textbooks at BOU.// Paper ID 133en_US
