Promoting the uptake of OER: results and exploitation of the POERUP project

The official funding period of POERUP has ended. Now all the project’s key outputs and public deliverables are finalised and available to the public. The more than 500 selected OER initiatives are all documented in a large wiki database and are displayed on an interactive, progressive OER Map. We invite you to browse the collection and if you have initiatives to add, submit your contribution.

The project’s overall aim was to develop policy recommendations to promote the uptake of OER (Open Educational Resources) in the educational sector, and to further the range of purposes for which institutions deploy OER: opening up education, widening access (internationally and in particular for developing countries), higher quality or lower cost of teaching – and combinations of these. These policy advice documents – for schools, for universities and for colleges and other organised education providers – were to be oriented to the European Union and a specified range of other countries.
