1B: It’s alive! Reviving OER with interactive content to create a living online course

The 5Rs of OER are not only a framework for licensing, but an opportunity to breathe life into texts that might otherwise be forgotten. The 5Rs also power the generosity that open education advocates and practitioners have been sharing with their peers who are new to online education. The speed at which open textbook creators can now adapt material for new contexts is a valuable skill as the future of higher education constantly shifts, and, coupled with the potential for OER to grow and fill new gaps, OER creators are poised to lead the shift to blended and online learning.

This discussion will feature educators who have incorporated formative and summative assessment into their OER to use the resource as a package for an online course. By using H5P interactive content, importing chapters from other texts, and/or adding a social annotation layer with Hypothesis, participants have revived OER to become the basis for online learning and an efficient way to transfer a previously in-person course to a blended or online classroom. Our participants will share their experiences with creating and incorporating H5P content, speaking about their challenges, their successes, and their surprises.
