Importance of Openness. There is a continuum of openness ranging from Open Access to full open, including the rights to modify resources. What kinds of openness are most important for which target groups?
Teachers and Trainers have a crucial role in adopting OER in TVET. What are opinions on and experiences with the role of the teacher?
