OPEN EDUCATION RESOURCES

As you are preparing for next year’s modules and possibly considering making your module open to a much wider audience then bear in mind that there is a raft of free materials (apparently 500 million items) available to you that you can use without infringing copyright. Some significant sites are:

Open Professionals education Network: http://bit.ly/1otQ0Yl which links to a range of materials from single photos to complete courses

Moodle Guides: http://bit.ly/1slDaiX which links to various resources to search for OER, provide textbooks and deliver Courseware
