ASCCC OER Development Guide – Coming Soon
Although designed for faculty developing OERI-funded resources, we hope the ASCCC OER Development Guide will be useful to all faculty OER developers.
Accessibility and Universal Design
Before initiating the development of any OER, it is important that you understand accessibility and attributions. Whether you are writing a resource or curating a collection of resources, building with accessibility in mind is always preferable over having to modify your work after it has been completed.
Attributions and Licensing
Ideally, you begin your OER development work with existing OER. And, even if OER is not available, you will be using resources that you will need to appropriately recognize. In addition, you need to understand the various licenses that can be applied to OER in order to understand what you can – and can’t – do.
OER Development Platforms
If your OER project is the creation of an OER text, building in a platform developed for that purpose can put a wide array of resources – and support – at your fingerprints.
