Adapting and Creating Classroom Content Using Free Open Educational Resources (OER)


November 27, 2017, Online


Educational content is an extremely large part of school budgets. OER and copyright free materials can help supplement and reduce costs, provide educators with free resources for differentiating classroom learning activities and resources students can freely use for projects. Combined with free tools for accessibility and online applications for uploading and posting for student access resources can also be freely distributed, accessible from any internet enabled device.
