Abstract: The Open Educational Resources (OER) are becoming a promising contribution to the enhancement of learning opportunities for all people worldwide. The OER involve educational digital content that have been released under an open license for free use or adaptation. The use of OER in formal and non-formal educational environments is known as OER-based learning. On the other hand, population ageing is currently recognized as a global issue of increasing importance with many implications for the economic development of countries. The access to learning by these people, in particular, the acquisition of the technical competence for using information and communication technologies, can improve their social involvement. This research aims to check the feasibility of using OER in lifelong learning programs for older people. Considering that these people have disabilities due to ageing, this research conducted a searching and validation process to verify the relevance and accessibility of OER t o be used on a specific learning program oriented to digital literacy for older people. Finally, this research presents an accessibility validation based on barriers that older people face for using OER. Further, this work highlights the issues that hinder the OER-based learning programs. (More)
