Introduction to OER tutorialAugust 25, 2008
Dr. Judy Baker, Director of the Community College Consortium for Open Educational Resources, recently developed a 12-module tutorial titled “Introduction to Open Educational Resources.” The tutorial is available to download as a 74 page Word document with links for educators interested in self-paced training.
This tutorial is designed to provide U.S. community college educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to find, use, develop, and share open educational resources. In addition, educators will discover a variety of worldwide efforts underway to make educational opportunity available to more people. While educators are likely to benefit personally and professionally from completing this tutorial, they may find that the biggest reward is in meeting others like themselves and joining in the OER Movement.
