The African Virtual University Open Education Resources Portal

AVU - OER portal

The African Virtual University (AVU) has just launched a new OER portal that contains quality resources developed together with 12 universities in 10 African countries and released as Open Education Resources under the Creative Commons open licence. The portal has been named OER@AVU and it is available in 3 languages: English, French and Portuguese.

Most of the resources are still being uploaded to the repository of the portal, but it will include about 219 courses and 100 videos of the African Virtual University on mathematics, physics, biology, chemistry, teacher education professional courses, and ICTs in education.

Partners of this project are OpenCourseWare Consortium, the Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa – TESSA, the Multimedia Education Resource for Learning and Online Teaching – MERLOT, the MIT Learning International Networks Consortium – MIT LINC and many African universities and institutions.

You can also follow their initiative in Twitter ( @avu_org ) and Facebook
