Open educational resources

  1. 1. “Open Educational Resources are teaching, learning, and research resources released under an open license that permits their free use and repurposing by others. OERs can be full courses, course materials, lesson plans, open textbooks, learning objects, videos, games, tests, software, or any other tool, material, or technique that supports access to knowledge.“ What are Open Educational Resources (OERs)? Source: SPARC: The Scholarly Publishing and Academic Resources Coalition http://sparc.arl.org/issues/oer
  2. 2. “Open Educational Resources (OER) provide a new model for disseminating knowledge that is designed to take full advantage of the digital environment. Students can access OER online for zero cost, download and keep a copy, and print as many pages as they wish. Teachers can collect and tailor OER to perfectly suit their curriculum, and share their innovations with other educators. Entrepreneurs can build businesses around OER by offering products that add value, such as assessments, software or enhanced formats. Authors can disseminate their work to a worldwide audience while still receiving attribution. OER can maximize the full benefit of the Internet to improve teaching, learning and access to education.” A NEW EDUCATION MODEL FOR THE DIGITAL WORLD http://sparc.arl.org/issues/oer
