This is the Trinidad and Tobago (Second Group) report on the Commonwealth of Learning (CoL) Open Educational Resources (OERs) project supported by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, which is currently being implemented in the following countries: Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Trinidad & Tobago, Seychelles and Zambia. In Trinidad and Tobago (Second Group), materials to support independent study in two selected secondary schooling subjects will be developed and made available electronically as OERs. Basecamp software (together with the CoL instructional design template) has been used to facilitate a collaborative, online approach to materials development and as a tool for managing the process. It is intended that the materials developed will, with some contextual adaptation, be suitable for use across the six countries in the CoL project thus maximising their usage.
