ABSTRACT
The Open Education Resource (OER) for assessment and credit for students initiative aims to develop a “parallel learning universe” to augment and add value to existing post-secondary education provision by creating flexible pathways for learners using open learning materials hosted on the Internet to earn credible credentials from accredited higher education institutions. This report documents emergent trends and proposes a high-level logic model for designing a scalable and sustainable international ecosystem for the successful implementation of the OER for assessment and credit for students initiative.
