Information about the project
Open Educational Resources Website
Using the Development Gateway's interactive web portal, the Hewlett Foundation is funding a new Open Educational Resources (OER) website to equalize access to high quality educational materials at low or zero cost to learners and practitioners throughout the developing world. The main focus will be on facilitating access to OERs and the creation of OERs, but the project will also enable the formation of online communities for teaching and learning, and provide opportunities for professional networking and collaboration.
