Fab Friday with Axel Dürkop

What are OERs?

In digital times, educational materials develop their full impact when they are free, copyable and changeable. Under the abbreviation OER (Open Educational Resources), a movement has therefore also been developing in Germany for several years that likes to share knowledge and make it available on the Internet. Axel Dürkop is an expert on OERs and conducts research at the Technical University of Hamburg. He visited us at our Fab Friday event.
