This case study explores the informal learning strategies adopted by students who rely on OERs to fill a gap in their understanding of the subject matter presented in large classes. Students in large classes sometimes face the particular challenge of a less personalised learning experience. For lecturers, large classes can carry a significant administrative overhead, resulting in less time available to engage with individual students.
