Free journal issue on #OER Open Educational Resources #socialInclusion

Here is a great opportunity to look at the Journal of the Open and Distance Learning Association of Australia. They have just released FREE ACCESS to the Distance Education Special Issue on Open Educational Resources (OERs) and Social Inclusion (Volume 33, issue 2). Not sure how long the free access will last, so take a peek, it is a list of interesting articles.


It is a great issue with articles on the benefits and policy factors when working with OERs. Here are just a couple of the articles:
