ABSTRACT
This paper attempts to assess the status of development of open educational resources (OER) in Hong Kong. It first outlines the potentials for Hong Kong to develop OER. With examples in three types, it describes educational resources freely accessible from Hong Kong’s portals. It analyses the extent to which the resources are open, and points out that existing materials have a lot to be desired in terms of openness. The final part of the paper proposes strategies that may facilitate the development of OER that are more open.
