Launch of the OPAL Register

The Open Educational Quality Initiative (OPAL) has launched the OPAL Register, a list of organizations declaring their use of open educational practices (OEP).

Orgaizations register to self-assess their OEP maturity levels based on the OPAL OEP Guidelines with questions on levels of:

  • open policies
  • use of open educational resources
  • open learning architectures

They can choose to have their assessment critically reviewed by independent experts which provides the organization with a confidential, comprehensive, Learning Report containing verified statements, improvement potential, and fields of excellence. The organization can then choose to make this Report publicly available.

The best reviewed public assessments can be considered for the OPAL Awards which provide exposure and recognition for successful open educational practices resulting in the improvement and quality and innovation in educational organisations. The winners and highly commended entries in the OPAL Awards will be announced at the 2011 Online Educa Berlin Conference.

Register and assess your organization in the OPAL Register at:

Please contact Ms. Molly Malone (m.malone@unesco.org) for more information.
