As an educator, you may already be creating and using educational resources that can be shared openly. From a glance through our guide, you may have noticed that OER goes beyond textbooks and includes many types of curriculum materials, including lesson plans, writing prompts, tutorials, worksheets, and tests.
Here are a few points of consideration when sharing OER.
Truly open content can be remixed and shared. This offers an opportunity for publication. To pass along the benefits of open publication, publishing your original work with the appropriate licensing and easily adaptable formats is encouraged, though not always necessary. Many tools are available, including tools that are free to use, to facilitate the creation of OER. Openly available tools are listed below.
Open means that OERs can be freely adapted or changed with proper attribution.
