Open Educational Resources (OER) are a promising concept for international collaborations: sharing, utilizing, and collaborating around OER across borders might help educational institutions and their staff to internationalize their activities. However, several barriers exist keeping stakeholders away from engaging in international collaborations. In this paper, we discuss the main challenges of OER uptake in international settings. Three case studies show potential solutions for OER uptake and collaboration in the European-Asian context. The case studies identify good practices, success factors and challenges. This paper provides a starting point for systematic analytical as well as design-oriented research on OER scenarios leading to a better understanding how to utilize OER in and for international collaborations.
