Be Open – How to create, use, and share Open Educational Resources

15th November 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Use open, be open. Learn how to create teaching and research presentations that can be shared openly on the web without infringing copyright.

Open Educational Resources (OER) are:

”Teaching, learning and research materials in any medium, digital or otherwise, that reside in the public domain or have been released under an open license that permits no-cost access, use, adaptation and redistribution by others with no or limited restrictions.” ~ UNESCO

Free is not the most important thing about OER, it’s the permission to modify.

In this session we will review the strategy, value, and diversification that creating, sharing, and useing OER can bring.

You will also be invited to develop short visual presentations using openly licensed content. During the session you’ll be guided through the process of finding, reusing, and sharing open content, learning about Creative Commons licenses along the way.
