Affordable Learning Lander (ALL): Remix/Create OER

Getting Started

Creating an OER is similar to authoring any other document, except that you are assigning that content an open license. 

Things to consider:

  • What license will you assign to your OER? Using a Creative Commons license will provide you with the legal framework to share your OER.
  • How will you make your OER accessible to all students? We recommend using the accessibility toolkit to address accessibility.
  • Where will you create and host your OER? There are sites available from which you can directly upload and share your materials, and there are educational repositories designed specifically to assist with the creation and hosting of OER. 
  • How will you share your OER? Once you've created your OER, you may want to share it in multiple repositories for maximum visibility. Consider Open Textbook Library, OER Commons, or MERLOT.
