Open Educational Resources (OERs) can play a part in advancing the lifelong learning and social inclusion agendas (Geser, 2007). The focal point of this paper is on how learners of different ages will be encouraged to adopt OERs by their teachers and facilitators. The discussion starts by looking at how the facilitators will support their learners in an open arena. This is followed by the facilitators approach to individual and group work in an open access environment. The discourse then moves on to whether open forums attached to OERs will be used instead of closed and password protected areas. This paper gives initial feedback about the intended usage of OERs for co-operative and collaborative learning.
