OER is for sharing and acquiring of knowledge

Open Educational Resources, OER,first coined by the UNESCO defines it as"teaching, learning and research materials in any medium, digital or otherwise, that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions."

Given the diversity of users, creators and sponsors of open educational resources, it is not surprising to find a variety of use cases and requirements. For this reason, open educational resources can give a wide array of information collection and processing that pander to the wide variety of users and needs. OER,I believe, can help connect the learning community across the globe to give wider access to worldwide,free content with ease. It is a milestone in the field on Information and Communication Technology that will support, feed and help the growing global community.
