Understanding the Impact of OER – new publication released

Previous stories


OER Africa was established in 2008 with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to collaborate with higher education institutions in Africa in the development and use of Open Educational Resources (OER). OER Africa is currently undertaking collaborative work to develop the professional competences and skills of stakeholders within African higher education institutions so that they can implement OER practices to improve the quality of teaching and learning.

The website showcases Learning Pathways in the form of open education online tutorials, OER courseware, research and policies, as well as regular communications (“What’s New”) on topics of interest in open education.
