How to Find Great OERs

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.

A mix of Wiki and Google to search OERs

A mix of Wiki and Google to search OERs | Open Educational Resources #OER | Scoop.it

While EducationBridge searches in that “federation” of OERs from the above-mentioned and more organisations, the result also shows similar texts. “The value-add here is, you get relevant content in a precise and concise form. You can use the content in a mix and match manner to create assignments etc,” says Thieringer. It gives you a “fine” result — relevant, contextual, contemporary, he emphasises. It is designed to make it easy for users to search for the desired text or even visuals lying among the millions of pages of OER.

"iCivics is an excellent source of educational games that offer lessons in civics. Since its launch a few years ago, iCivics has steadily grown to the point that it now contains nineteen educational games for students. All of the games require students to take on a decision making role. To succeed in the games students have to apply their understanding of the rules and functions local, state, or Federal government. Some games require an understanding of the U.S. court system and or the Constitution."
