Finding, Using, and Creating Open Educational Resources

Whether adapting an existing OER, transitioning your course materials into the Open, or creating an OER from scratch, you will likely be using materials created by others. Because Open doesn't just apply to the finished resource but all of the elements within the resource, it is important to ensure that everything you include in your OER respects licensing requirements. In this session we will walk you through some strategies for finding open content to adapt, or include within your learning resources, as well as best practices for attribution. We will also provide you with guidance for developing your own search plan and documentation, including a workflow and templates for curating resource details.

This session will cover:

  • Identifying open educational resource repositories and online spaces for finding content
  • Developing a search plan for finding resources across platforms
  • Developing a workflow for curating resource details for use in an open educational resource project 
  • Identifying terms of use and licensing of resources and attribution practice
