*Executive summary: *Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational
materials that are freely available and can be legally used and modified by
anyone. Properly leveraged, OER can help everyone in the world access free,
high quality, learning materials. OER can help governments meet the aims
set out in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),
especially with regard to SDG4: ensuring inclusive and equitable quality
education, and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. This
policy brief describes open educational resources, open licenses, open
education licensing policies, and actions governments may take to support
open education in their countries.
This policy brief has been written by Creative Commons with input from the
Commonwealth of Learning and the Commonwealth Secretariat.
