Background
“UNESCO believes that universal access to
high quality education is key to the
building of peace, sustainable social and
economic development, and intercultural
dialogue. Open Educational Resources
(OER) provide a strategic opportunity to
improve the quality of education as well as
facilitate policy dialogue, knowledge
sharing and capacity building.”(1)

Open educational movement
Production/Project Mobile OER for the training of
education researchers
Research Team (CUDI-CONACYT)
22 professors, 7 researchers
7 institutions of higher education
The projects resulted in 64 OERs for mobile access
designed to be used for post-graduate research
assistant training.
Dissemination and Mobilization/ Projects MOOCs
Repositories
A set of centralized web services which aims to
organize, manage, preserve and disseminate digital
materials (mainly for scientific and academic
purposes) as created by an institution and its
members. Digital materials are used under open
access policies.
In Latin America we are working on three types of
repositories: institutional, national and continental.

OER Content Playlists promote and facilitate
remixing of core courses and their components
Create new content:
• Course
• Topic
• Activity
Index subjects
Examples of playlists:
1. OER as textbook
alternatives (bibliographic
resources)
2. OER as reusable resources
3. OER as learner generated/
modified content
Lessons learned
As a group, we decided to integrate several working
teams to maximize the potential of learning via the
creation of a Community of Practice (CoP) for each
research project.
Potentials and challenges that can arise from the
integration of learning with MOOCs and OERs

On-going research
Enhanced instructional design
Shared communication
Technical support
Further and sustained impact on training and
knowledge transference.
