Digital technology plays an important role not only in life and work, but increasingly in education and training. An inclusive and equitable society can be unlocked with the availability of quality educational materials that can prepare learners for work and life. A rising number of platforms with Open Education Resources (OER) provide access to high-quality educational materials relevant to skills development. In times in which the development of knowledge is increasingly dynamic, openness in itself has emerged as a quality in education. In this circumstance, it is the key in realising the advantages of OER in the area of TVET.
