We are thrilled to announce the launch of the new OER Africa website. The website is designed to support Open Educational Resource (OER) practitioners – teachers, academics, academic librarians, trainers, and policy makers – across Africa and beyond in accessing and using OER. With a user-friendly OER repository and regular updates and reflections on OER, the platform is a key aspect of our efforts to support OER practitioners to harness the power of openly licensed materials.
