Hello Sir.
OERs have revolutionized the teaching and learning fraternity.
There has been a paradigm shift from conventional classroom teaching to ICT enabled and learner-centric approach.
OERs have the potential to add on the resources and are available online 24/7.

I will try my best to contribute to the aims of the initiative.

OER is the need of the hour. It enhances the teaching learning Process and more useful for the lifelong learners to update their knowledge in digital era. Hope this will help my country to suck out the good prospects of OER. Always co-operative in marching forward
