We all know that creating or adapting high-quality OER can be pretty difficult, but it doesn't have to be. OERPub and Connexions, as well as other partners, are working together to build a next generation open-source web editor, that helps authors create rich open educational resources (OER) from scratch or using their existing educational materials. These new tools make it easy to collaboratively create, adapt, and distribute OER so students can get them however students need them (print, web, computer, mobile tablet or phone, etc).

In this webinar, we will show of the latest advances in open education publishing technology as well as invite discussion about what authors need to create truly interactive learning content.

  • Currently Development of education content is incredibly inefficient and moves at glacial pace . In the current system in the US, textbooks are updated only about every 5-7 years. Meaning that even though Pluto was downgraded from a planet to a minor planet in August of 2006 , some students are still being taught with books that reflect incorrect information. This inefficiency is especially pertinent in the fast moving areas of science and technology.

  • Content is developed in a manner that does not reflect the interrelatedness of its topics to topics outside of its field. This makes it difficult for learners to connect the dots and explore content making discoveries on their own.
  • Where all the different topics are connected to and inform each other. And topics don’t exist in a vacuum.
