Spotlight on OER policy in the Global South: Case studies from the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project

To understand how policies enable or constrain educators’ adoption of Open Educational Resources (OER) in South America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia, the Research on Open Educational Resources for Development (ROER4D) project undertook a meta-synthesis of seven ROER4D studies conducted in four countries – Colombia, South Africa, Afghanistan and Mongolia – to illustrate the varied influence that policy has on OER adoption in these diverse national contexts.
