So you want to create an Open Educational Resource (OER) but you don't know where to start.  No need to worry, we are here to help you.  The first step is to make an appointment with Associate Professor and Librarian Miriam Deutch and an OER Developer. We'll walk through all the possibilities and help you create a wonderful OER. Bring your imagination and the following to the meeting:

  1. Course syllabus
  2. Electronic version of any documents you want included
  3. Make sure all pdf documents are accessible and scanned with ocr (optical character recognition)
  4. Electronic versions of images
  5. Lists to any sites you want included
  6. Links to any OER materials you have have already found or made which you want to re-use
