Current State of Advancement of Open Educational Resources in Kenya

The purpose of this study is to explore the status of the creation, use and/or management of open education resources (OER) in Kenya. OER, which to a large extent depend on access to Information Communication Technology (ICT), are seen by proponents as offerring certain opportunities to improve access to and quality of education. Like many other countries in sub-Saharan Africa, Kenya finds itself in a period in history where ICT is revolutionizing society in an unprecedented fashion. In education, such technological revolution is being harnessed to transform teaching and learning with one important aspect being access to and development of learning materials. OER is a global movement in education spanning many countries and initiatives, it is therefore timely to explore if and how the movement is taking shape in Kenya.
