Recognizing the pivotal role that Open Educational Resources OER[i] have, providing equally effective access to learning opportunities for all, Mada has joined the growing worldwide OER movement and pledges as such to promote OER accessibility harnessing the power of inclusive ICTs so that educational resources are accessible for all.

With this in view, Mada launches the “Mada ICT-AID OER Hub”[1] to be a Global knowledge hub featuring freely accessible resources toward closing the training and knowledge gap in ICT Accessibility.

Mada Hub contains collections of accessible open educational resources, which are aligned to the “Mada ICT Accessibility and Inclusive Design (ICT-AID) Competency Framework”[2]. These resources are aggregated, curated and managed by Mada and partners, through collections, and groups, and development tools available on the Hub.

The community of ICT accessibility professionals, experts, advocates, educators, and learners can discover, create, and share accessible quality open content, and connect with others to expand their capabilities and improve inclusive practices.

The Mada ICT-AID OER Hub is meant to be a centralized and searchable repository of ICT-AID aligned educational and training materials to help the community in Qatar and beyond, locating and accessing appropriate OER related to ICT accessibility. In that vein, Mada ICT Accessibility and Inclusive Design competency framework is featured as a standard available to users of the OER Commons[3] digital library and collaboration platform. As a standard, Mada ICT-AID will be used to index and describe ICT-AID aligned OER providing accordingly ease of access and retrieval of these resources. As such, the ICT-AID competency framework will be used for searching, aligning and evaluating Open Educational Resources published on the Mada ICT-AID OER Hub, serving globally learners and educators.
