Open Educational Resources (OER) are educational materials of any kind and in any medium that are published under an open licence. Such an open licence allows free access and free use, adaptation and redistribution by others with little or no restriction. Open Educational Resources can include individual materials but also complete courses or books. Any medium can be used. Curricula, course materials, textbooks, streaming videos, multimedia applications, podcasts - all these resources are OER if they are published under an open licence. The course provides an overview of the most important terms and licences and bundles important materials, links and platforms. The participants will try out how to search for OER, how to use them correctly and how to create their own OER materials for their own courses.
