One of the delights of working at Charles Sturt University is being able to range across innovation opportunities – to make a difference!
A project that I have had some connection with has been the open university initiative branded as OERu. Check out what they are up to at https://oeru.org. It’s a very interesting project headed by Wayne McIntosh UNESCO / ICDE Chair in OER, Director of the OER Foundation, OERu thought leader.
The OERu makes education accessible to everyone. Coordinated by the OER Foundation, we are an independent, not-for-profit network that offers free online courses for students worldwide. We also provide affordable ways for learners to gain academic credit towards qualifications from recognised institutions.
I need to ask for your help! We need you to subscribe to the Youtube Channel.
One of the outputs of the communication’s project is a short video explaining what the OERu is and how it is designed to enable education opportunities around the globe.
As a charitable organisation, YouTube has approved a Youtube for non-profits account for the OERu. We have met all the requirements to qualify for a custom url for the new channel, expect that we need 100 hundred subscribers.
We need your help – please subscribe to the OERu Youtube channel so we can qualify for a custom url.
This will make it easier for learners to find more affordable options for higher education and higher education institutions to become more sustainable.
This sounds like a great project, Judy. Thanks for letting us know about it. I have subscribed. I hope you soon get the other 99 subscribers, and more.
