UnisulVirtual is a private university located in the state of Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil. The motivation for UnisulVirtual to join the OER movement was to collaborate with the Open University (OU) of the United Kingdom in the provision of OER. UnisulVirtual makes use of the existing OU platform OpenLearn, in which educational resources had been made available by the OU under the Creative Commons License. This license enabled individuals to reuse the materials and change them for non-commercial purposes. UnisulVirtual therefore chose to both translate OpenLearn materials into Portuguese and publish them, and to translate their own materials into English, and make them available in both languages.
