To coincide with Open Education Week, we have prepared a dossier with open-access resources for your continuous assessment activities
As it says on the OERCommons website, "Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials that you [teachers, students and autodidacts] may freely use and reuse". They are online resources that can be accessed at no cost and with a licence that allows for the 4 Rs: reuse, revision, remixing and redistribution. To promote the many advantages of OER, the Open Courseware Consortium has organized the Open Education Week from 27 to 31 March. Over the coming days, you will be able to access free online seminars and forums for debate organized by bodies from around the world via the project's official web page.
We would like to take this chance to present the dossier we have prepared where you can find a range of open-access tools, including those offered by the UOC. This is the case, for example, of the institutional repository, O2, a portal which hosts and preserves the digital publications produced by the University's community.
Likewise, the dossier has links to a series of open educational resources focusing on a number of different fields of knowledge, includinglaw, tax law or communication.
You can also find a number of services offering photographs, videos and audio for free to add to your continuous assessment activities, or tools to create infographics and mind maps. Each resource has a brief description to give you an idea of what it offers and how it works.
