Published on

The Open Education Resources MOOC was a 4 week online program designed to enhance knowledge about OERs and to equip for effective use and adopt OERs in ones programs as well as to be able to create our own OERs and contribute to the pool of OER resources. The nominal duration for completing this course was 4 weeks. However, because of the nature of this program which allows flexibility and personalisation, participants were allowed to take another 2 weeks if they so wished to complete the course. This MOOC was designed to help impart the knowledge and develop the skills needed to be successful in learning from OERs or teaching the chosen subject to post-secondary students and life-long learners using OERs. MOOC after OER included access to colleagues and discussion forums with other MOOC participants centered upon common interests and pursuits.
