There are numerous platforms to use to create your Brooklyn College OER. This guide, created by Brooklyn College Library's OER Developer Colin McDonald, provides a basic overview of various OER platforms.
There are many digital tools available which can be used in OERs as learning objects. The Digital Toolbox for Teaching and Scholarship, created by Brooklyn College Library's OER Developers, explores and evaluates some of the many digital tools available on the web.The toolbox also touches on accessibility and the ADA in digital scholarship and creation.
Digital Tool Topics Covered:
Accessibility is important for everyone and benefits everyone. Open access and open pedagogy is about building and sharing knowledge with as many people as possible and accessibility is part of that mission and means making your OER usable by people of all abilities. In addition, with the increase of student centered content creation, we need to make sure the creation side of digital tools, platforms, and projects are also accessible to as many people as possible.
This guide and resources, created by Accessibility Librarian and OER Developer Amy Wolfe will walk you through accessibility issues and how to create accessible OERs.
