This article explores the possibilities provided by self-directed learning by means of Open Educational Resources (OER) in Afrikaans literature teaching. The National Curriculum and Assessment Policy Statement provides a basis on which self-directedness can be motivated and the use of technology such as OER be supported. From the scholarship on literature teaching, clear links exist concerning self-directed learning. However, in order to foster self-directedness, it is essential that learners are central to the teaching context and that aspects such as active learning, cooperative learning, motivation, metacognition, the communicative approach, problem solving as well as an openness to text choices be considered. Finally, it is also evident from the literature review in this article that OER can provide clear opportunities toward the enhancement of self-directed learning in Afrikaans literature classes. However, despite some initiatives, there is a great need for expanding further online resources such as OER in this context.
