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.
