Entering the Cyber Arena of Education

Today, every aspect of life all over the world is greatly anchored on cybernetics. As the world is engulfed by the tentacles of Corona virus, the world is now compelled to squeeze out the immense possibilities of the cyber saga. In such a context Open Educational Resources play a key role in the contemporary educational arena. The Albertian Centre for Human Resource Development and Research, St. Albert’s College (Autonomous), Ernakulam initiated the campaign “OER Friendly Campus.” As the first step the centre opened a platform for the teachers to get an insight into OER by taking a self-learning online course – “Understanding Open Educational Resources” offered by the Commonwealth of Learning.” Commonwealth of Learning is an intergovernmental organization created by the heads of the Commonwealth government to encourage the development and sharing of open learning and distance education knowledge resources and technologies. The course offered a fruitful platform for the teachers during days of Lock Down.
