University co-operation: a lever for the development of open educational resources


University cooperation appears to be a relevant tool for promoting OERs. Because, the synergies resulting from this cooperation effectively promote the sharing of knowledge.

Format: Workshop medium

Open Educational Resources (0ERs) are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. According to the Draft Ljubljana Plan of Action on OER 2017, „OER represent a strategic opportunity to improve knowledge sharing, capacity building, and universal access to quality learning and teaching resources“. Faced of the growth of the number of students in universities, it is clear that, almost all developing countries still have difficulties. Thus, we can see that access hardware, software, and connectivity remains problematic. However, taking these tools into account would offer their students services that are more cost-effective. It is therefore essential to encourage the sharing of knowledge in order to adapt teaching methods and materials.
