Open educational resources (OER), open access and open learning has revolutionised the concept of education. To applaud the efforts put together by different individuals and organisation to facilitate open resources and their access this platform provides gateways to the various resources that students and lecturers can make use of to continue learning and building knowledge even without their and our physical presence.

These materials are freely available and can be downloaded, edited, and shared for the betterment of the academic embodiment because OER are not confined to the same copyright restrictions as materials from traditional publishing companies. Lecturers can modify OERs to personalise lesson plans and make sure students receive the most current and accurate information available without waiting for an updated textbook.

The list resources collated on this platform is not exhaustive but just highlights some materials that one can make use of. Because building this collection is not an individual initiative, if you as a reader come across material you think might be of help to others feel free to contact the librarian so the link can be added as well as comments and other suggestions.
