Open Educational Resources (OER) are invaluable assets for teachers and researchers alike. These no-cost, open access resources allow educators and students to find information, but navigating the wealth of OER on the web or creating new resources can be intimidating for newcomers. This course, created by Carrie Gits of Austin Community College Library Services, provides 10 modules on OER that will be invaluable for librarians, instructors, and researchers. Each module can be accessed from a menu on the left hand side of the webpage (viewable as a hamburger icon on tablet and mobile devices). Modules provide videos, text, resources for further learning, and a knowledge checklist, and cover topics that range from accessibility issues to Creative Commons licensing. By the end of this course, individuals will be able to create OER of their own and understand the intricacies of such resources. Participants can also earn professional development credit for completing the whole course and final assessment. Additionally, there is an optional supplementary activity workbook linked at the bottom of the page. This will be added to Open Educational Resources (OER) Sources white paper.
