Finding Open Educational Resources: From Needles in a Haystack to X Marks the Spot


Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 1.25.57 PMDoes finding open educational resources (OER) take more time than it’s worth? Teacher time is a precious commodity. In this webinar, attendees learned the tricks of the trade for finding tried and tested OER treasures and walked away with their own treasure map to X marks the spot. DeLaina Tonks gave attendees confidence in search techniques, “go to” treasure troves, and the top ten OER sites available for plunder. As a bonus, when all else fails we learned some quick tricks for creating your own OER and where to house it for others to find so you can share your homemade treasures with the greater OER community.
