|Welcome! Come in and find out what this course is about.
Hello and welcome to the micro Open Online Course (mOOC) 'Repurposing Open Educational Resources: An Introduction'. This is a professional development short course aimed at anyone interested in openly licenced resources for education. You might be at a school, university, TAFE, private provider, or have a general interest in open education.
At the end of this micro-course you'll have created an Open Educational Resource (OER) suitable for your own teaching practice. This might sound daunting - but don't panic. The course should take you between ten and fifteen hours to complete, and the course is structured so that you can work at your own pace, explore issues of importance to you, and interact with other practitioners. There aren't any schedules for you to follow, but rather a series of activities that build toward the end goal of a usable open resource. You only need to engage as often as you can.
These resources will help you to understand the course and how it will be run:
- Course Facilitator and Overview (what can you expect from me?)
- What is expected from you?
- Research outcomes in OEP1000
- New to OpenDesk? Let me show you around.
If you're ready; let's start a few 'warm-up' activities.
