The OER Workshop at OUM!

I am really looking forward to facilitating a 2-day workshop on Open Educational Resources (OER) at Open University Malaysia (OUM) from 5-6 March,  2013. Insya-Allah, everyone participating can benefit from it in one way or the other. What am I looking most forward to? Really tough questions and perceived impossible learning scenarios from great minds at OUM.

As we are expecting at least 40 participants, it should be a challenging and exciting learning adventure in the making. Let's OER! 


This 2-day workshop will empower participants with the necessary skills to find, reuse, remix and create Open Educational Resources (OER) for their courses. During the first day, participants are introduced to OER, and how it can be found, reused, remixed and created. During these two days, we will explore and discuss together the concept of OER, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), Creative Commons (CC), business models, and variety of OpenCourseWares (OCW) 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 resources. In the final session, we will discuss how to move forward with OER at OUM.


After this workshop, you will be able to:
  • Discuss the benefits and challenges of  reusing/remixing/creating OER;
  • Select the appropriate Creative Commons license (6 types) for your content development needs;
  • Find OER and OCW using a variety of search tools;
  • Identify a variety of web 2.0 and Social Media tools to develop OER with;
  • Reuse/Remix/Create OER using a LMS, Wiki or Blog.
  • Conceptualize an OER strategy for your course/programme/institution.
