ABSTRACT
Expanding access to quality tertiary education is a critical challenge for developing countries. Faced with burgeoning demand for higher education, open and distance learning (ODL) is now deployed by many conventional institutions. An important way of transforming education through ODL is through the development of open educational resources (OER). //
