Basic Guide to OERs (UNESCO & CoL): a great e-book
Via Scoop.it – Open learning news
This looks like an excellent guide to open educational resources for newcomers to the field, and it also contains very useful, detailed information for old hands, such as the appendices giving an overview of OER repositories and search engines around the world. Very clearly written and covers all the essential information about Creative Commons licences, how and where to find OERs, how to publish OERs, as well as a section on making the case for OERs. Great work by author Neil Butcher and editors Asha Kanwar (Commonwealth of Learning) and Stamenka Uvalic´-Trumbic´ (UNESCO).
