  8. 8. Open Education (OE) is a movement to make education accessible to all Broad view of education, beyond institutions, removing barriers Collective term that is used to refer to many practices & activities that have both openness & education at their core. Open Educational Resources (OERs) are teaching, learning, and research resources that reside in the public domain or have been released under an intellectual property license that permits their free use or repurposing by others (Wiley, 2010).
