The Open Education Resource (OER) Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides leadership, international networking and support for educators and educational institutions to achieve their objectives through Open Education.
The OER Foundation leads innovative projects helping individuals and organisations return to the core educational values of sharing knowledge freely in a sustainable way. We:
- Coordinate the international OER university network who will provide free learning opportunities for all students worldwide with pathways to achieve formal academic credit.
- Connect individuals and organisations on a global scale to achieve their open education objectives with the help of WikiEducator -- one of the world's fastest growing and most productive open education wiki communities in the formal education sector.
- Build capability and skills for educators to participate effectively in this new world through Learning4Content -- the world's largest free training project to develop wiki skills for education.
- Provide professional consulting support including the development of OER strategy for your institution, design, mentoring and coaching services for your organisation and staff to save cost (and time), improve the quality of teaching and learning and widen the diversity of your curriculum offerings through strategic investment in open education approaches.
