CollabOERate is a new global concept which aims to:

  • Assist individual OER initiatives and projects to better achieve their local aims through smart win-win collaborations on a global scale
  • Offer help and support to institutions as they migrate to OER.
  • Promote the co-design and implementation of demonstrator projects which transcend individual OER project "silos" thus representing the open content equivalent of industry's "co-opetition" model, that is, where individual OER projects choose to collaborate in areas of their operation to enhance the attainment of local project objectives.
  • Identify the world's best national and regional OER project concepts which can be revised and remixed for scaling up internationally.
  • Reduce unnecessary duplication of effort and enhance return on scarce OER financial resources.
  • Share the risks associated with innovation in OER while enhancing the skills and experience of local OER practitioners.
