Policies Survey notes:
- Zambia is participating in the OER4OS project. This experience has allowed the country to develop most of its school-level materials in an electronic format and make them available as OER. Zambia identifies this initiative as responding to the challenge of supplying material to schools and other educational institutions.
- The respondent to Policies Survey from Zambia noted in relation to Zambia's motivations for involvement in the OER movement that "We have a big challenge in the supply of material to our learning institutions and therefore open educational resources would be an answer."
