Open Educational Resources (OER) is not only a buzzing trend, but a realistic platform to realize the spirit of ‘Education for All’. UNESCO describes Open Educational Resources (OER) as teaching, learning or research materials that are in the public domain or released with an intellectual property license that allows for free use, adaptation, and distribution. OER include full courses (in which case also known as open courseware, or OCW), course materials such as notes or slide presentation, modules, textbooks, pictures, videos, softwares, games, etc. This workshop provides some insights into various facets of OER and demonstrate how OER can be integrated in an educational setting. An emphasis will be given on hands-on activities and sharing of relevant strategies to produce content (learning resources) using various web-based tools, softwares and tablet apps (optional).
