In August 2010, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) passed a landmark institutional policy in support of OER. The new policy formalises the role of the OER coordinator, as well as the technical support role of the Department of Communication Design (DCD). The university maintains copyright ownership for OER and other instructional materials developed. An instructor may, however, select the Creative Commons licence that he or she prefers. Most notably, the policy establishes a reward structure for OER production; it proposes that faculty receive the same credit for OER modules as for peer-reviewed publications and that the university allocate time for faculty to create OER.
