/* Institutional OER policies */
* Some universities in Germany work together in order to offer quality OER teaching material on the web. The University of Darmstadt provides a platform OLW [ (OpenLearnWear)] as an open source software for other universities to publish their OER material as well. While doing this, these universities contribute to the idea of free education on the internet. Darmstadt also provides a website with the different URLs of other OER platforms from universities to make it easier to find the other initiatives.
