The project built a new open course on Open Educational Resources and Open Education. The course focuses on higher education, particularly the 130+ public institutions that are part of the Open University of Brazil (UAB, see a map).

A first offer of the course took place early 2018 with approximately 300 participants. Our aim was to provide awareness on the main issues and concerns and provide an opportunity for those that are familiar with the concepts to exchange ideas and dwell deeper in some of the more complex issues, and think of practical models for advancing this agenda in their institutions. The course is available openly in our course site, and can be downloaded as a Moodle file.

Late 2018 a second version of the course has graduated 31 to OER Ambassadors in these institutions, focusing on a more hands-on, practical approach to actual implementation by these actors in their institutions in the form of local policy, institutional professional development or other area of focus.

The course is now being formulated as a 420h specialization course for teachers at all levels of the educational system, to be offered in Portuguese and Spanish, in partnership with UDELAR (Uruguai).
