Abstract

The idea of the ABLE-Ghana OER project emerged shortly after the second residential meeting at KNUST. On reflection, the UK team realised that although Ghanaian colleagues had asked to explore the Open University catalogue and their associated resources stored in the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), this had never happened. Infrastructure problems and a full schedule had meant there was never the right moment and enough time. In consequence, one of the aims of ABLE-Ghana – the exploration and adaptation of OU resources – was not happening. Following consultation with the Deans, who were enthusiastic, a working study visit was set up for December 2010. Four universities participated by nominating lecturers to visit the OU Business School (OUBS) for two weeks.
