|What is MORIL|
MORIL is a leading-edge Open Educational Resources (OERs) initiative by the Open and Distance Teaching Universities within the EADTU membership. The MORIL initiative is a multi-country initiative, and is to make educational content more broadly accessible (by means of OERs) to a vast array of both (lifelong) learners and institutional users.
A multitude of OER member courses (varying in size) is involved in the initiative, directly aligning with EADTU members' institutional strategy and development. All OER offers are special in nature and differ from the offers of conventional universities in the sense that they consist of pedagogically-rich learning materials, specifically designed and developed for distance learning and intended for independent self-study.
Besides English content, many OERs are compiled in the national languages of the participating members within MORIL, making the initiative truly multi-country and multi-lingual: reflecting adequately the international dimension.
MORIL is co-funded by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation makes grants to address the most serious social and environmental problems facing society, where risk capital, responsibly invested, may make a difference over time. The Foundation places a high value on sustaining and improving institutions that make positive contributions to society.
