What it's all about

Enabling Policymaking for Open Education

Open Education Policies are regulations and strategies, which foster the development and implementation of Open Educational Practices, including the creation and use of Open Educational Resources, by governments, institutions and other organisations. They allocate resources and orchestrate activities in order to increase access to as well as quality, efficiency and innovation of education.

The OE Policy Hub fosters collaborative policymaking by promoting good practices and high-quality resources, and bringing together experts, advocates and organisations from all over the world.

The heart of the hub is the Open Education Policy Registry*, an evolving database which collects and classifies Open Education Policy documents from all educational sectors and levels of governance around the world.

Build your support network

If you want to go fast, go alone – if you want to go far, go together! The success of your policy initiative depends on finding the right partners – from the very beginning on. Our expert database allows you to find regional experts to support your initiative.

Share documents

Let others benefit from your experience

So, you’ve progressed with your initiative, overcome several hurdles, and finally implemented your open policy? Then please make sure to share your outcomes and experiences!

We are looking for policy documents and case studies. The more policies we record and the richer the data about them, the deeper the insights we can gain from analysing the data.

Together, data and narratives will allow us to identify efficient strategies and to spread them for the sake of learners and teachers worldwide. So please make sure to contribute both!
