Open Education Week 2014

This week from 10th to 15th March 2014 many have been celebrating the ‘Open Education Week (OEW)’. The key principals of OEW are Open and Free. I believe that education like food, cloths and shelter should be a right for every human being on our planet. So providing Free and Open education becomes even more important in the 21st century.

Offering Free and Open resources available to the world essentially allows the sharing of knowledge for everyone, everywhere at anytime as long they have access to a PC with Internet access.
Below are some links that you might find useful to search for Free and Open resources to either enroll on a course yourself or download, amend and recreate a course that you could offer to others.
