It’s Alive! Reviving OER with Interactive Content to Create a Living Online Course

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The 5Rs of OER are not only a framework for licensing, but an opportunity to breathe life into texts that might otherwise be forgotten. The 5Rs also power the generosity that open education advocates and practitioners have been sharing with their peers who are new to online education. The speed at which open textbook creators can now adapt material for new contexts is a valuable skill as the future of higher education constantly shifts, and, coupled with the potential for OER to grow and fill new gaps, OER creators are poised to lead the shift to blended and online learning.

This panel will feature educators who have enhanced existing OER by incorporating formative and summative assessment to remix/revise the existing resource into a package suitable for an online course. By using H5P interactive content, importing chapters from other texts, and/or adding a social annotation layer with Hypothesis, panelists have revived OER to become the basis for online learning and provided one quick, efficient model for transferring a previously in-person course to a blended or online learning environment. Our panelists will share their experiences with creating and incorporating multimedia, annotation, H5P activities and other interactive content in their openly licensed texts and will explore some of the challenges, successes, and surprises they've encountered along the way.

Learning Outcomes:
- Compare and assess interactive elements and multimedia that can be integrated into online content to enrich the student experience
- Attendees will understand how they could develop a simple openly licensed “Frankenbook” for quick pivot to online learning
- Imagine long term applications for interactive online course material such as making open textbooks with students as a form or non-disposable assignment
