Open Educational Resources (OER) offer opportunities for increasing equity and access to high-quality K–12 education. Many state education agencies now have offices devoted to identifying and using OERs and other digital resources in their states. To help states, districts, teachers, and other users determine the degree of alignment of OERs to the Common Core State Standards, and to determine aspects of quality of OERs, Achieve has developed eight rubrics in collaboration with leaders from the OER community.

Learn how other OER projects have overcome similar challenges and fulfilled similar needs. 2. Improve networking so that relevant learnings and opportunities can be identified and leveraged. 3.

Office XP for Business

Manual to support students in using the Microsoft Office XP operating system ... (more)

Manual to support students in using the Microsoft Office XP operating system and the Microsoft Office 2003 software suite. In many developing countries IS textbooks tend to be expensive despite the best and, I believe, sincere efforts of educational publishers to keep their developing country rates as low as humanly possible. This book (except for the Access section) has been released under the Creative Commons license, i.e. it is freely available for (educational) use to anyone who wants it. Bandwidth in South Africa is quite expensive so please download only the chapters (modules) in which you are genuinely interested. Non-African users are kindly requested to use one of the mirror sites e.g. Richard Watson's http://globaltext.org/books/website/books-OfficeXP.html (which will be much faster plus this site also has some other exciting stuff!) These books are intended to be "QuickStarts" i.e. they do not take the long leisurely "idiot" approach but rather condense the essential knowledge in a compact volume. In addition, there is quite a bit of "South African" customization (which was one of the reasons for writing it in the first place). The modules on Windows, Word and Powerpoint are rather dense - I spent 80% of my time on writing the Excel sections which is what we teach here at first-year level. The "QuickStart to Excel" introduces the basics in a fairly relaxed manner; the "Using Excel" is a more advanced and faster-paced exploration of Excel functionality in the context of Commerce Students/Business Users.

The University of Michigan Open.Michigan project is taking a particularly unique approach to Open Educational Resources. Michigan has a strong community of Open projects ranging from open source software development and the formation of open standards to open archive and open access publishing initiatives. Open.Michigan is a space for communication and collaboration. Our website serves as an introduction to the projects and the partners that form the basis of our open community, but it is also a virtual forum where collaborators from across the University and the larger OER community can learn more about what's happening within the open community at the University of Michigan, connect with other projects and people, and share best practices and other resources.
