Open Educational Resources in TVET

UNEVOC has published a booklet on OER for skills development. It gives an introduction to Open Educational Resources, the history of the concept, and its current and potential use with a particular view to TVET. The publication includes a brief summary of a study UNEVOC commissioned in 2017 which looked at the potential of OER to improve access to quality TVET, and which was implemented by Robert Schuwer, OER Chair for OER, Fontys University, Netherlands, and his colleague Ben Janssen.

Our OER in TVET resources list provides access to openly licensed content for TVET. This growing collection lists more than 40 resources, services and platforms offering open TVET content. Please review it and help us expand it.

On a separate page we have collated a list of websites offering Public Domain images. These pictures can be freely used in educational projects.

If you are a member of the Open Education community, we encourage you to add your projects, services, or institution to the OER World Map, which "collects and visualizes data on the growing number of actors and activities in the field of open education worldwide", in order to provide a more complete picture. By clicking on the map below you can access the resources and actors in the area of TVET.
