Level of Expertise


Many states and school districts are using Open Educational Resources (OER) for reasons that are as much about innovation as they are about economy. OER are available for any curriculum and can be accessed, used, adapted, and re-distributed at no cost. And with careful consideration in the curation process, they can be accessible to learners with disabilities. In this webinar, we'll introduce an openly available protocol for curating accessible OER. In preparation for this webinar, please review a draft of the Protocol for Curating Accessible OER, v. 1.0.

Unable to attend the webinar?  No worries!  The link to the recording becomes available on this same page approximately one week after the webinar.
