The corridor of uncertainty: COL/UNESCO report on national OER policies

The corridor of uncertainty: COL/UNESCO report on national OER policies | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
Open educational resources (OER) are becoming a feature of education all over the world though the uptake is often very patchy. Mostly it's a grassroots movement with groups of teachers and individual schools or colleges taking admirable initiatives. However top-down support for OER is still unusual and without this I don't believe that OER can become mainstream.

Claude Almansi's comment, October 31, 2011 3:24 AM
Thank you for the scoop, Susan: it is important because this framework is Unesco's. However the PDF of this framework (1) is strangely repetitive in its emptiness. The very few examples of possible activities were already run-of-the-mill in the former millennium, except for one foreseeing the use of the interactive whiteboards: but how many schools in emerging countries can afford them?

Also: how does a 94-page, multi-column, A4-formatted PDF read on a smart cell phone?
