ROER4D is very proud to be the focus of a special report in this week’s edition of University World News. Extract from the special report:

‘Open educational resources’ are the focus of a growing field of inquiry, particularly in the Global South where, up until now, research has been relatively limited and isolated. Now, a new book based on three years of research across 21 countries and three regions in the Global South offers the first comprehensive analysis of the uses and impact of open educational resources, which have the potential not only to reduce educational costs, but to enhance the quality of educational materials.

It features an interview with Cheryl Hodgkinson-Williams, and regional summaries of project findings from Africa, South America and Asia. This is a useful guide if you are interested in a summary of the key messages that emerged from the project.
