Open Access


Open Education Week

Open Education Week takes place during the first week of March. It is an annual global initiative aimed to raise awareness about the advantages of implementing open educational resources and practices.

Open Education Week is part of the Open Education Global program that aims to expand access to education, as well as improving its quality, making it more accessible and boosting student success. Open Education Resources (OER) are based on acknowledgement of authorship and public domain, or an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no restrictions.
