The role of distance education is changing drastically both at micro and macro context. Education has no longer remained either the prerogative of institutions or even knowledge has no longer remained under the sole control of teachers only. Thanks to Information and Communication Technology (ICT) which has not only brought the revolutions in the education system but also changed the strategies for learning amongst the young masses. As one progress in the present century, almost every day new and advanced technologies are added, and thereby the strategies for learning are also getting updated in the educational institutions. The role of teachers in the context of planning learning strategies in the classrooms is getting replaced with the updated inputs as supported by the ICT. Hence, each and every player in the education need to get them selves updated to this changing scenario. This calls for not only self-renewal for teachers on a continuous basis but also the planners, the policy makers and even parents need to adopt themselves to this changing environment. It is in this context, the Open Educational Resources (OER) plays a significant role not only to updates ones own knowledge but also empowers to create a knowledge society amongst the developing world. // Paper ID 188
