From vision to reality

“Open education is not limited to just open educational resources. It also draws upon open technologies that facilitate collaborative, flexible learning and the open sharing of teaching practices that empower educators to benefit from the best ideas of their colleagues”


(The Cape Town Open Education Declaration, 2007).

Impact of digitisation on right to Education

States should invest in free and public digital platforms and infrastructure for education, grant adequate funding to public institutions to develop alternative free digital solutions and tools that do not involve the private personal data market, and support the development of non-proprietary data tools, platforms and services that are based around values of openness, transparency and common stewardship (rather than individual ownership) of data. They should prioritize the production and use of content in the form of open educational resources and provide a professional, systematic and personal guiding service to individual users” (Boly Barry, 2022)
