  1. 1. PROS AND CONS of OER by Barbara Jacobs Photo by kalexanderson
  2. 2. OER: WHAT GIVES? OER: IS IT FOR ME? OER: TO USE OR NOT TO USE ?
  3. 3. HMM, DO I WANT TO SAVE MONEY FOR STUDENTS? DO I WANT TO GIVE THEM HIGH QUALITY RESOURCES? DO I WANT PREPARED STUDENTS ENTERING MY COURSES? DO I WANT STUDENTS TO BE ABLE TO REVIEW MATERIALS ONCE THE COURSE IS OVER?
  4. 4. DO I WANT PROTECTION FROM COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT? DO I WANT TO INCLUDE A VARIETY OF FREE RESOURCES FOR BOTH VISUAL AND AUDITORY LEARNERS? IF SO, OER IN THE CLASSROOM IS FOR ME. HOWEVER, I MUST :
  5. 5. • BE PREPARED TO SPEND THE TIME NEEDED TO FIND EACH RESOURCE • RECOGNIZE THAT THE PERFECT FIT MAY NOT BE THERE • CHOOSE ONLY FROM OPEN LICENSES AND PUBLIC DOMAIN MATERIALS • PROPERLY ATTRIBUTE SHARED WORKS
  6. 6. • BE PREPARED TO FIND ADDITIONAL RESOURCES IF MINE BECOME OBSOLETE IF I CHOOSE TO SHARE MY OWN WORK, I MUST ALSO BE PREPARED TO: • SPEND THE TIME TO LICENSE IT. • UNDERSTAND THAT THE LICENSE IS NON-REVOCABLE WORTH IT? YES!
