UNESCO OER Toolkit

Philipp Schmidt, UNESCO, Jun 17, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As the next step in its Open Educational Resource (OER) initiative, UNESCO has released this discussion paper on an OER toolkit. The paper itself is in a wiki, while the discussion is happening in the UNESCO OER online forum. It's a very compressed discussion - only three or four days for each of the paper's eight sections. It's pretty good so far but it needs work - I'd like to see the "core areas and concepts of education" aligned with the UNESCO survey from just a few months ago (see, eg., p. 12 of The Way Forward) - or at the very least, a reference put in place. And as before, I will say, I don't always think they say exactly the right things, but they are going about this project in mostly the right way, getting more open at each step.
