Why the portal?
We would like to believe that much of the data being used in learning and Teaching has been generated by open and public bodies. Open data has a positive impact if it is channeled through appropriate media. Most governments have considered the value of re-using open data and this has become more evident in education too and through this portal, we expect a wider impact on the learning community.
Open Access Policy of the portal
Access is free to all users. However, some areas may be restricted to registered users only. A free registration on the portal will provide subscribers with real time updates of new posts and information access to future user restricted learning themes
