This 3-hour self-paced course introduces participants to essential information about Open Educational Resources (OER). It includes key definitions, examples, and reflective activities presented primarily in multimedia format. The goal of the course is for teachers to have a basic understanding of the benefits of using OER, know where to find them, and how to evaluate their effectiveness.
This is an introductory course set-up to help practitioners develop a site plan for offering distance or blended learning to the adult learners. It is also a prerequisite for IDEAL 102: Instructional Issues or IDEAL Program Administration.
