The Darakht-e Danesh Online Library for Afghan Educators is a repository of open educational resources (OERs) for teachers, teacher trainers, school administrators, literacy workers and others involved in furthering education in Afghanistan. It uses a multilingual web platform custom-designed for this initiative, and currently houses resources in 14 subject categories, for both primary and secondary teachers, in Dari, Pashto, and English. The Darakht-e Danesh Library aims to increase access to quality resources for Afghan educators, encourage teachers to consult a wide variety of resources in their practice, to use these tools to adapt their own, and to share their own resources with other teachers. This session will describe the process of developing the library and some of the challenges that it has faced in amassing a collection of multilingual, open-licensed content.
