  • 3. Before we start
    • I am interested in collecting your ideas and impressions. Please use the form provided to answer the question: What do you understand by the term open educational resource (OER)?
  • 4. Openness and the OU
    • The OU was set up to be open - open to people, place, methods, ideas
    • Our resources often used in other contexts
    • OpenLearn draws on that experience and reflects the OUs mission
    • OpenLearn publishes OER resources offered for use beyond the original context
    • These are open to being shared
  • 5. So what is OER?
    • OER are resources which have open licenses attached
    • They are free-of-charge resources
    • They are freely available resources
    • Beyond this they advise you what the limits are to reuse within your own context
    • They may allow adaptation, repurposing or remixing (copyright doesnt do that)
