The National Repository of Open Educational Resources (NROER) is a collaborative platform, involving each and every one of us interested in children, teachers and education. The Repository will endeavour to bring together all digital and digitisable resources for the school system – for all classes, for all subjects and in all languages.
The Repository is an initiative of the Department of School Education and Literacy, Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India and the Central Institute of Educational Technology, National Council of Educational Research and Training. Metastudio, the platform hosting the Repository is an initiative of the Gnowledge Labs, Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education.
The Repository organises its collections into a ever growing semantic map of concepts. The concept map itself is a learning resource for teachers, providing an opportunity for critically assessing the curriculum and aiding the construction of their own unique learning themes for their classrooms. The digital resources – documents, audio-visuals, interactive objects, images are mapped to the concepts. This enables access to a library from which teachers can choose appropriate resources.
Each resource is tagged to related concepts making it accessible. Each resource can be downloaded. Each resource can be commented upon. Each resource is released for free use.
The Repository has just begun. It has many concepts mapped. It also has many resources. It will be our collective endeavour to grow it to encompass school curriculum. We invite participation.
