This thread topic emerged from our discussion about how to give our prize away next week.

Perhaps the next winner could be picked by getting contributors to explain on a separate thread how they might use or are using OER in their organisation - the most interesting/creative reason gets the prize. This would stimulate postings and also inform us and give us ideas.

Some of you may have already responded to this question -- How are you using OER in your organization? -- in other posts. If so just add a quick note here to point us to it.

Look forward to hearing your stories! And don't feel that interesting and creative means it has to be a HUGE project. Sometimes the simplest ideas are the best.

Simply because we are still a developing country. We have to think of OER to Share the knowledge. Knowledge is one of the core competency which we can compete with other countries (in terms of exports..etc). As a Sri Lankan I believe this is one of the opportunity which has been created by the cyber world to us to win the world….But unfortunately we have some abnormal rates(our literacy rate is 90%,but computer literacy rate is only 18$%).
