Commentary by Stephen Downes

Education ministers from the Commonwealth of Nations have endorsed open educational resources (OERs) at a conference in Mauritus. "They noted that while there was a plethora of initiatives for the development of Open Education Resources (OER), such as scientific publications, eBooks and journals, there was a need to set up a common platform for OER materials for harmonisation and ease of access. They further highlighted the need for a common framework for all open universities of the Commonwealth, especially those in small states." The Commonwealth is a group of nations that were formerly British colonies, including Canada, India, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand and others, and is influential in education through the Commonwealth of Learning.
