If you have been with Saylor Academy long enough (or have just poked around our site enough), you will know that open educational resources (OER) have been at the heart of our courses from the very beginning. We use OER for our learning materials as much as feasible and our courses themselves can be remixed under a generous open license (CC BY).

Occasionally, we even mention the Five R’s of open content — permission for end users (like you!) to:

  • Retain
  • Reuse
  • Revise
  • Remix
  • Redistribute

All of this is easier said than done. That’s where the ExplOERer-created, P2PU-hosted course Learning to (Re)Use Open Educational Resources comes in! The course is available in English, Swedish, and Polish.

Here are the essentials: the course lasts four weeks, with an expected commitment of ~3 hours per week. It started on February 22nd but there is still time to join!

To be clear, we didn’t build this course, we didn’t sponsor it, and we don’t know much more about it at this point than you do. The more you know about OER, though, the more you understand what makes Saylor Academy tick, and the more power you have to make our resources and millions of others on the Web truly your own.

P.S. Any time you want to remix Saylor Academy courses or resources, head over to our GitHub page, our bookshelf, or just browse our Open Course Resource Center to learn more about what’s possible!
