KNUST Open Educational Resources (OER@KNUST)


KNUST Open Educational Resources is an initiative of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology that seeks to promote open learning through an open exploration that enables faculty, students and the global academic community to access open licensed educational resources to maximize the impact and reach of their scholarly work through open sharing.

Available on this website are tools and resources to teach you about open education and how you can be involved in this initiative. Learn how you can create OER with your own materials or use, "adapt" existing materials and publish works with appropriate licensing conditions. With collaborative support from other partner institutions involved in this growing international initiative, you will receive help in finding, using, creating and sharing openly licensed content. The College of Health Sciences (CHS) is the first of KNUST’s six colleges to launch an OER initiative, supporting the production and use of Open Educational Resources.

CHS is made up of 2,000 students and comprises; the Faculties of Allied Health Sciences, Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, School of Medical Sciences, Dental School, School of Veterinary Medicine and the Kumasi Centre for Collaborative Research in tropical medicine (KCCR).
