CountryMongolia, Malaysia, Asia

Since the transition from a planned economy to a market‐based democracy in the early 1990s, Mongolian higher education has experienced rapid expansion. Between 1992 and 2007, the number of tertiary education institutions has increased more than four‐ fold and enrollment more than six‐fold.But despite this growth, many Mongolians believe the quality of education remains poor, although the costs of higher education are increasing. Introducing and adapting open educational resources (OER) for the Mongolian higher education sector could help reverse these trends.
One possible strategy that the Ministry of Education could consider is the adoption of a learning technology‐based pedagogy that might enable a fairly rapid transformative process while at the same time improve on the quality of content as well as create a population of instructors, teachers and learners familiar and comfortable with using web‐based open educational resources.
The International Development Research Center (IDRC) Canada, through the DREAM IT project has supported the development of an emerging open education strategy for Mongolia. The ONE Mongolia initiative, discussed in this paper,will become the successor to DREAM IT projectwith the goal of supporting Mongolia’s emergence as a learning nation with a knowledge economy based on open development principles.
