Digital Teaching and Learning Tools Supporting OER, Alan Levine, Director of Membership Strategy and Community Engagement, Open Education Global

Digital Teaching and Learning Tools Supporting OER, Alan Levine, Director of Membership Strategy and Community Engagement, Open Education Global

Overview

Interest, capacity, and support for creating more engaging and supportive learning experiences includes initiatives to adopt or even develop multimedia and other non-text resources for students. Growth in digital learning and teaching tools has expanded beyond text and static displays to imaging, graphing, and multimedia interactions. These offerings create tremendous opportunity for OER creators and users, and we have seen their impacts realized in a wide array of courses and course materials.

H5P exemplifies perhaps the best attributes of OER. As an open source platform independent tool, H5P produces web standard interactive content laced with attribution and open licenses, but also in a sharable form prime for reuse and remix. That's all technically impressive, but for educators, the value it provides is the ability to embed in the context of learning managerial the kinds of practice activities that so effectively reinforce learning.

This opening session is part “choose your own introduction adventure making use of the H5P Branching Scenario content type” but also an opportunity to first sample hands on a wide buffet of H5P examples in the subject areas of interest to you. A second follow-up session will explore more deeply.
