Introduction

OLnet fellowships were offered for researchers and practitioners who wished to contribute to the understanding of Open Educational Resource (OER) design and use worldwide. There were three rounds of open competition.  Details of the application procedure for reference are still on the website, but no more Fellows are planned to be recruited at this stage in the project.  Below is a list of the Fellows who were supported by OLnet.  In addition there was one intake of OLnet-TESSA Fellows who are listed separately here: /content/about-olnet/olnet-tessa-fellows.
