From the publisher: This starter kit has been created to provide instructors with an introduction to the use and creation of open educational resources (OER). The text is broken into five sections: Getting Started, Copyright, Finding OER, Teaching with OER, and Creating OER. Although some chapters contain more advanced content, the starter kit is primarily intended for users who are entirely new to Open Education.
Important distinctions exist between "Inclusive Access" plans provided by publishers and true Open Educational Resources. Readings linked from this page explore the pros and cons of vendor-provided "inclusive access", the benefits as well as time, money, and effort required to adopt OER, and Open Pedagogy.
