OER for Adults

Free & Open Resources for Academic, Employability, and 21st-Century Skills

Happy Monday!

I wanted to share something we recently launched to promote the increased use of free and open educational resources in adult education. 

CrowdED Learning just launched its first Skill Directory—a set of 11 subject-area PDFs, each of which includes a listing of comprehensive, free resources that can be used to support instruction in each subject area. Each PDF can be downloaded, or can be copied over as a Google Doc into Drive so you can add whatever additional resources you might want. 

Let's Share OER!

In the past, educators tended to be very territorial and protective of their creations. If you wanted access, you had to pay, beg, and borrow. Not so for last the three or four years!

Wonderful material is being freely shared by individuals, groups, and institutions. Dozens of universities and colleges now offer free and open access to many if not all of their courses.
