OER Initiatives in Bolivia

Through Fundacion Uvirtual, a nonprofit civil foundation that works with universities and companies seeking to deliver online courses, Bolivia is participating in an international project called Oportunidad (Opportunity). Institutions from Latin America and the European Union participate in this project, which seeks to create a common ground in higher education by increasing the use of open educational resources (OERs) and practices (OEPs). Oportunidad started in January 2012 and ends in June 2014.
