OER - it's already out there
You should already have a pretty clear idea about what an OER and OEP are and which kind of licences are available for this.
The next step is mainly practical: searching for OER is a common task for those involved in adult education. OER are then used as-is or are repIntrodurposed. In order to do this, it is important to have a set of criteria for searching for OER. This module addresses this from a practical point of view. Starting from an analysis of the resources you use in your classes, you will search OER in order to select one/s and repurpose it/them according to the detected needs. (This module is an adaptation of the activities 2 and 3 from the PREA course (Maina & Pérez-Mateo, 2013. Available here!)
The core activity of this module is to search, evaluate and repurpose an OER.
Four main tasks are defined:
- To identify a concrete need for the use of OER and establish some search criteria.
- To search for resources using some OER repositories
- To apply quality criteria for the evaluation of the resources found
- To identify the need of adaptation of the resource/s in order to be applied in your concrete context (repurpose)
