Open Educational Resources (OER) are Creative Commons licensed works that are free to access, distribute, and revise. In this 3-week course, we will review the what, why, and “how” of OER. Lessons will cover the need for OER materials in both academic and public library contexts, copyright and Creative Commons, OER publishing, and current OER trends. We will review popular OER repositories and work hands-on with open materials to learn and demonstrate the benefits of open resources. Please join us if you are interested in OER, scholarly communications or library publishing!
