Useful Resources From the OER

OER Wiki

The goal of the OER movement is to "equalize access to knowledge worldwide through sharing online high quality content. Open Educational Resources are digitalized materials offered freely and openly for use and reuse in teaching, learning and research".

In supporting this, the OER wiki provides links to many useful resources including:
* Portals and gateways
* Repositories
* Development and publishing initiatives
* Software and tools
* Teaching using OER

Also, the recent publication "Open Educational Resources: Conversations in Cyberspace", which brings together background papers and reports from the first three years of activities in the UNESCO OER Community, is available for download.

This publication captures "the conversations between leaders of some of the first OER projects, and documents early debates on the issues that continue to challenge the movement. The publication will provide food for thought for all those intrigued by OER – its promise and its progress".

Well worth checking out as well as the OER Commons mentioned in an earlier post.
