Abstract

Project description The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation /Commonwealth of Learning-Open Education Resources for Open Schools Project has as its aim to broaden access to secondary education through the development of high quality Open Distance Learning (ODL) or self study materials. These are to be made available as Open Education Resources (OERs). The training of teachers in online materials development over a period of two years is likewise a key outcome of this project. The project seeks to produce OERs in 20 selected subjects across six developing countries. The countries are Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, Botswana, Seychelles and Trinidad & Tobago. Originally India was part of this project, but withdrew after a while and Zambia came on board instead as the sixth country. Across these countries, 100 teachers (all intended to have materials development experience) were selected to participate in the programme.
