Hosting the 2012 World Open Education Resources (OER) Congress at its headquarters from 20-22 June, UNESCO will lead the debate to accelerate the development of OERs worldwide, with the participation and support of global governments, educators, NGOs, and prominent universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

OERs are any type of educational materials that are in the public domain or introduced with an open license. Anyone can legally and freely copy, use, adapt and re-share OERs, which include textbooks, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio and video.
