Article: “OER Guidelines and Tutorials: How to Create Open Educational Resources”

From the ZBW (Leibniz Information Centre for Economics in Germany) Media-Talk Blog:

Open educational materials are very popular. But how can lecturers be convinced to use open educational resources – or even better, create them? Tutorials, guidelines, videos and other information for researchers, lecturers and other interested parties play a key role here.


A number of tutorials and other sources of information are available online to assist in the creation of open educational resources. Besides offers of support from universities, this also includes OER projects and OER information centres. We have put together a selection [in this post].

Resources includes both German and English-language materials and are organized into two categories:

  • Self-Learning Courses and Guidelines From Universities
  • From Manuals to Videos to Canvas – OER Information Centre Materials

The post also includes a full-text embed of Campus Computing 2018: 29th National Survey of Computing and Information Technology in American Higher Education.
