Worldwide universities publish more and more course materials as OER, open educational resources. The report reviews the current situation in the field of OER in the Netherlands as investigated by the Centre for Learning Sciences and Technologies of the Open Universiteit as commisioned by SURF and Wikiwijs. The OER developments in the Netherlands are still in an early stage, but the researchers of the Open Universiteit expect that this will change in the future. Half of the institutions for higher education indicate that they do not have yet a policy with concrete activities to realise a vision on open educational resources. However 42 procent indicate that this policy is currently being developed. The researchers do discern a difference between universities and institutions for higher professionel education. Universities are noticeably more active as to offering open learning materials.
