Instructional design/Leveraging OER in Your Design
Open Education Resources can be a great asset to your instructional design. In addition to being free, they are typically easy to access for your learners as almost all educational resources utilize the internet as their media of transfer. In this lesson, we will be discussing how to leverage the many Open Educational Resources at your disposal to add value to your lesson without breaking the bank. Specifically, we will:
- Define OER and review a brief history
- Compare and Contrast the strengths and weaknesses of the current OER available to designers
- Provide examples on how you can leverage OER for common instructional design scenarios
We will also give you the chance to practice yourself. Ready?
