Course Content

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. OER range from textbooks to curricula, syllabi, lecture notes, assignments, tests, projects, audio, video and animation. (UNESCO)

Upon successful completion of this online course, you will be familiar with the use of material with an open license, the search for OER, the creation, revision und remix of OER und as well as how to share open licensed materials.

Course Goals

At the end of the course, you can name and use different licenses and their requirements and differences. You can find openly licensed educational resources (OER), you can create, revise and remix OER and you can publish OER and make them available to others.
