    Frederik Truyen, OER-HE stakeholder workshop, March 2011
  • 2. Open Education
    ...is the simple and powerful idea that the world’s knowledge is a public good and that technology in general and the Worldwide Web in particular provide an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to share, use, and reuse knowledge."
    The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation
  • 3. OCW
    "The Open Courseware concept is based on the philosophical view of knowledge as a collective social product and so it is also desirable to make it a social property."
    V. S. Prasad, Vice-Chancellor - Dr. B. R. Ambedkar Open University, India
  • 4. OER Initiatives
    open courseware and content;
    open software tools (e.g. learning management systems);
    open material for e-learning capacity building of faculty staff;
    repositories of learning objects; and
    free educationalcourses.
