In spring 2011, the Palau islands Ministry of Education implemented an Open Educational Resources (OER) pilot program initially at the Palau High School. The purpose of the pilot was to introduce innovative ways to engage students, enhance delivery of "on-demand" curriculum supportive material as well as to create ways to extend learning beyond the school day using digital learning technology. In 2013, the OER/iClassroom project was expanded to seven middle and elementary schools. The impact of OER on Palau schools... hundreds of thousands of dollars in textbook savings; up-to-date instructional content; and an engaging student learning experience -- with no academic decline by using OER. The pilot success is an OER showcase for the Pacific region.
