Creative Ways to Create Your Own OER


OEROne of the best things about open educational resources is that anyone can make them! It can seem like quite a daunting task to create OER from scratch. This Open Educational Resources (OER) in the K-12 Classroom webinar showed educators how to create OER using materials they already have. Presenter, Tyler DeWitt is a student coordinator for the new MIT+K12 video outreach project and is also the author of an ever-expanding online video textbook for high school Chemistry. He explained step-by-step how you can create OER with everything you already have on your computer.
