This week (9-13 March 2015) is the Open Education Week – a celebration of the global Open Education Movement. Its purpose is to raise awareness about open education and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide. Open education encompasses resources, tools and practices that employ a framework of open sharing to improve educational access and effectiveness.
RUFORUM is pleased to share with you the growing database of open educational resources that have been developed as part of the MRCI Project, Agshare I Project and Agshare II Project. Please click here to view the courses. We also have some courses shared on our MOODLE platform that can be accessed through a guest username.
The following Open Education Resources are available:
- PhD Aquaculture & Fisheries Science (4)

- Dry Land Resource Management (2)
- Virtual Learning Environments (1)
- Training Workshops (1)
- Research Methods (11)
