OER.UoCh.Edu.Pk (University of Chitral Open Educational Resources).

In the wake of the global emergency on Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the universities of Pakistan are planning to go online under the aegis of the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (HEC). The University of Chitral has launched a comprehensive open learning knowledge hub to assist the faculty and students both at home and abroad to learn through the web. This includes a wide range of learning resources including free audio-visual lectures from the top universities and institutes of the world.
