The Open Book Project: Educational Resources in Arabic

From http://www.state.gov/p/nea/rls/203276.htm

The Open Book Project is an initiative of the U.S. Department of State, the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization and leading education innovators to expand access to free, high-quality education materials in Arabic, with a focus on science and technology. These resources will be released under open licenses that allow free use, sharing, and adaptation to local context. Offering access to these resources will help to create educational opportunity, further scientific learning, and foster economic growth.

 The initiative will:
 Support the creation of Arabic-language Open Educational Resources (OERs) and the translation of existing OERs into Arabic.
 Disseminate the resources free of charge through our partners and their platforms.
 Offer training and support to governments, educators, and students to put existing resources to use and develop their own.
 Raise Awareness of the potential of open educational resources and promote uptake of online learning materials.
