Infrastructure for Open Educational Resources

Hannover (GER), October 2019 – Whether single visualisations, videos, podcasts, lecture notes, course material, or entire courses, open educational resources (OER) refers to a highly diverse range of learning tools that meet certain requirements. OER can be lesson materials of any kind, in any medium, published under an open license. They can be shared, modified, reused, adapted to specific teaching and study contexts, and expanded collaboratively, making it a lot easier for learners to gain access to high-quality educational resources and open learning.
