Module 1: Example of Existing Resources


  • Many faculty already use OER in their classes - showing an openly licensed course video, using worksheets created and shared by other faculty.
  • Faculty can create and share syllabi, lesson plans, and even entire textbooks for their courses. They can collaborate with faculty at their own institutions, or other institutions around the world.
  • They can access and remix existing OER and re-publish them to share with others.
