Open Education Resources (OER) are digitized materials offered freely and openly to use and adapt for teaching, learning and research.
The OER movement is part of a global effort to make knowledge available to all. In fact it is the best way to take advantage of widely available, digital material on the Internet for teaching and learning. It can dramatically improve the access to education, enhance the quality of education and reduce the cost of education. Teachers can craft richer and engaging learning experiences for their students by using OER, leading to better learning outcomes and reduced dropout rates.
This course (and the accompanying workshop) is for students, teachers, managers and policy makers of Education Institutes.
It starts with an introduction to OER, and why it matters.
Next it discusses "How OER are licensed to allow for their reuse and re-purposing by others".
The course continues with step by step instructions on "How to find, adapt and use OER".
Using OER in the Class Room is the next topic. It is emphasized that social media and networking are integral parts of the OER movement.
For the initiated, we then present technology behind OER: eLearning Systems, Creation and Editing Software and Tools, Mobile devices etc.
To conclude, we present a special module titled "Relevance and Importance of OER For India Education System"
