The first exercise, where you look for a video that discusses OER, is really useful. If you like TED talks, try a search like "open educational resources ted" in YouTube. You'll get some great materials. (For some reason "OER TED" doesn't work as well.)

This course was a really helpful and practical introduction to OER. I appreciated how practical and hands-on all of the course activities were, encouraging participants to get some experience in searching for, evaluating, and beginning to think about OER search tools and resources might (or might not) be useful in our own institutions. Would be great if there could be an OER 200 course (intermediate OER!) to continue discussing OER!

This OER workshop is fantastic, as it provides a wealth of information about open materials available that may be integrated within class lessons. It also supplies a great overview about the processes in which to cite others' work as well as how to license material you create.

This class really opened my eyes to the wealth of information that is OER. The most useful is the proper way to credit others work.

This course on OER is short, but very informative. It is well organized and I highly recommend it! It also provides a place for you to discuss the topic with colleagues from other institutions with varying perspectives. It provides a great starting knowledge for OER that I think could be invaluable to anyone working in their institution's Instruction office.

The first activity, where everyone goes out and finds an OER video, was really helpful. Well-organized, clearly taught. It gave me a lot to think about, although I'm not completely on board with OER yet. Thanks to the designer and the instructor!!!!!

This class was really helpful and informative. I recommend reaching out to the instructor whenever you have a concern, as she is quick to respond with a clear and thorough response, and is clearly an expert. The resources and additional links are also very useful, and it was fun to learn how to share my own OER to the commons and to other sites. I also recommend taking advantage of the extra opportunities that are not required, as they will help you learn more.

This OER course is short and sweet. It doesn't take a ton of time, but it does cover a lot of information about copyrights and provides a lot of links for OER depositories. I didn't realize there was so many resources available (lots of tests and assignments too, not just lectures/texts). It will take some time, but I'm looking forward to finding supplemental materials for my classes, as well as maybe brushing up on learning some new topics myself.

The OER course has been an asset for me- I had no specific information about OER at all and now I have a good overview and feel qualified to implement OER.

The external resources are particularly informative and useful. I created a bookmark folder specifically for OER related materials. I foresee this folder getting a lot of use.

Terrific class. The quizzes are short and follow the short readings exactly. The assignments ask you to do precisely what you need to do in the real world to use OER correctly; they are 'target tasks' that sample only the skills you will actually use with nothing extra added. I had previous OER attribution experience, so this was precisely the refresher I needed. The links you receive both from the instructors and your classmates are invaluable. It's just what you need to take your classes back from being at the mercy of textbook publishers as regards your content, pacing, and establishing dialogic pedagogy.
