Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Why invest lots of time, effort and energy creating new course materials from scratch when quality, freely-available resources may already exist? Why not adapt and use these resources, known as Open Educational Resources (OER)?

Dr. Rory McGreal , Contact North | Contact Nord Research Associate and the UNESCO/Commonwealth of Learning Chair in Open Educational Resources shares his expertise in a series of 10 short, informative videos that address the what, why, where, and how of OER. Through the videos, Rory guides you to effectively find and make use of OER for more time- and cost-effective course development.

In addition to practical information on OER, Rory also addresses issues of copyright, fair dealing, and licensing for freely available materials.

Watch one or all of the videos – each has its own story to tell!
