Patricia Daniels's curator insight, October 31, 2014 12:15 PM

Finding OERs that suit your teaching / learning needs is not an easy task. I always end up readjusting something or creating material from scratch, particularly if it's really a niche language area that I'm working with. However, filtering out links that are appropriate to your line of teaching can be a real benefit despite the time it takes to do this. But in the long run I feel it's worth it. Plenty of resources here to sift through with attention given to CC licences.
