The UNU is committed to providing open access to all educational materials used in capacity development and training programmes covering a wide range of topics including fisheries, geothermal energy, biodiversity, water resource management, economic and policy studies, innovation studies, comparative regional studies, software engineering and e-governance. The UNU is an active member of the OpenCourseWare Global Consortium.
The global opencourseware movement holds considerable promise for the expansion of access to tertiary and lifelong education, especially in developing countries. Universities from around the world have started to make available course materials freely on the Internet.
These materials range from lecture notes and reading lists to full video lectures, and some courses are carefully designed for self-study by online users. As a result, anyone with an Internet connection has access to learning materials from more than 3000 undergraduate and graduate university courses.
