The vision for the Nebraska OER is to provide statewide OER awareness, resources, support, and training. This is a statewide collaboration between the Nebraska Department of Education, Educational Service Units, school districts and educators with the goal to curate and create quality open educational resources that are aligned to Nebraska curriculum.
Are you ready to become a member of the Nebraska OER hub, but not quite ready to join a working group? Then join the Nebraska OER Information group to learn more. Once you are a member of the hub, update your profile that identifies you as a Nebraska educator and start to save and curate resources under the "My Items" menu.

Get started using our OER authoring tool, Open Author. This video walks you through how to author and remix; including how to add and format content, import and attach resources, embed media, add co-authors, check for accessibility, describe your resource, select a license, align to standards, publish, and download.

Open Author offers the option to create and share resources by importing from Google Docs. We recommend using the Google Doc Import feature rather than adding a URL link to your Google Doc within an Open Author resource for a few different reasons:
The Module Builder allows authors to create both student and instructor facing content views. Authors are encouraged to include overviews, pedagogical supporting text, and instructions for both students and other users of the resource. The Module can consist of sequenced tasks, which can incorporate a step-by-step approach to learning. Each task can have associated resources available for download
Submit open educational resources to OER Commons if you control the copyright or licensing, and if the materials are hosted online. OER Commons will create a record of the resources and make it discoverable to other users.
