Type of outcome: Wiki (public)

Delivery date: October 2012 (but updated through the entire project)

Language versions:English, relevant parts in French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish, and maybe other languages

Target languages: All relevant languages


A wiki-based set of OER in Country reports summarising OER initiatives and policies.

There will be at least 10 country reports (plus 1 from Athabasca), with each partner focussing on their home country and in some cases one other.

Further mini-reports will be prepared in the wiki for at least 3 Southern Europe countries, 5 North/East Europe countries and 5 non-European countries of particular relevance to be selected at project start.

To encourage further coverage and help sustainability, volunteers identified via EDEN, the IAC and WikiEducator will be encouraged to produce mini-reports on other countries. Volunteers may also be used via interns at partners.

The country reports will draw on the programmes inventory and examine also the National Policy Context relating to OER. The reports will be informed by telephone/email interviews with key actors such as civil servants and relevant agency heads. The IAC will add value to the reports by critiquing them and adding expert assessments.
