Respect, Understanding and Open Educational Resources
OERs have huge potential in working with the 32 small and island states. The concept of sharing content along with developing the skills needed to develop learning content was introduced along with the establishment of the Virtual University for the small States of the Commonwealth. Although it carries the name "virtual" much emphasis is placed on print and digital as well as eLearning. It also has started creating a "Transnational Qualifications Framework" to help small countries gain credibility for the programmes offered in their countries. We want qualifications in small countries to be as recognised as those from big countries.
