The OER 101 Workshop at USM II


This 2-day workshop will be conducted at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) from 27th – 28th August, 2012. It provides an introduction to the understanding of Open Educational Resources (OER), and how OER can be found, reused, remixed and created. During the workshop, we will explore and discuss together the concept of OER, Creative Commons, MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), business models, and variety of OpenCourseWare (OCW) case studies and content development tools. During the 2nd day, participants will be required to work in groups (hands-on) to create a course topic/module (of choice) by reusing and remixing OER from a variety of sources. In the final session, we will discuss how to move forward with OER at USM.


The OER 101 Workshop at USM II from IMU (International Medical University)

The latest edition has some new slides compared to the first OER workshop at USM, especially on MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), which will be more emphasized this time around. I am really looking forward to all the discussions, especially regarding MOOCs.



Here is easy access to all the links discussed or explored during the talk:

1. Open Educational Resources (OER)

Open Textbooks (e-books)

Learning Repositories

3. Finding OER

4. OER Case Studies

5. Creating & Sharing OER

This blog post will be continuously updated until after the workshop :)

Hi Zaid,
Will there be any set up for attending the workshop online?

Not this time around :(

If there is a demand for it in the future, I could perhaps conduct a 2-day online workshop.

Live broadcast of lectures is cool, but not interactive workshops, especially with a guy like me moving all over the place to engage potential sleeping minds..LOL :)

Anyway, I have shared the slides, and I suppose sometime in the future I could do ia workshop fully online if there is a sponsor :)

Thanks for the great question!

Warm regards,
