OER development collaborative

An open approach to educational resource development can help to increase collaboration in the edTech community and avoid duplicating work that has already been done.

Our mission is to develop and curate OER building blocks as a technical foundation for open educational resources development. Our goal is to help governments, programs and development projects to maximize their resources, and ultimately their impact, through open standards, open data, open source technologies and open innovation.

OER building blocks

The OER.dev community has a practical and technical focus, curating a set of technical guidelines for OER development that includes standards, accessibility, file formats, and metadata. OER.dev also provides guidelines for content creators that are using H5P.

This also includes a curated list of resources that can be navigated and found by topic or search.


H5P makes it easy to create, share and reuse HTML5 content and applications. H5P empowers everyone to create rich and interactive web experiences more efficiently. All you need is a web browser and a website with an H5P plugin.

The OER.dev community focuses on coordinating the development of new content types in close collaboratioin with the H5P core team. Learn more about our H5P development.
