A Playbook to Go Open: 5 Steps to Adopting OER - Randy Wilhelm, EdSurge

Advocates of OER boast that in addition to being more affordable, these resources can provide more up-to-date content because digital OER can be updated more frequently than traditional textbooks. When digital learning was in its infancy in the early 2000’s, there were few platforms or tools available to help educators decipher and select quality online content—nor was there a direct need for them. Now, a seemingly limitless amount of robust digital content is available for educators to tailor content to individual students. The Department of Education has its own OER initiative, called #GoOpen, which aims to promote equity for all students to have access to high quality learning materials. https://www.edsurge.com/news/2017-11-19-a-playbook-to-go-open-5-steps-to-adopting-oer
