Welcome to the OER Training Toolkit.
This web site is designed to support a self-directed, activity-based approach to understanding how open education resources (OER) can be used to support teaching and learning in open and distance learning contexts.
Use the Sidebar at the right side of the page to choose the module you wish to use.
You can use these materials in sequence from Module 1 to Module 5, or in any order you choose.
The assembly and presentation of workshop materials were sponsored by the International Development Research Centre of Canada (IDRC – CRDI) and were produced by Wawasan Open University (Malaysia). The materials were first used at a training workshop at Hanoi Open University in June 2010. This web site provides access to a revised and updated version of the workshop materials.
Each module contains both information and activities. The idea is for you to learn about OER concepts by exploring the information, web links and media resources within the modules, and then for you to collect and manage OER resources that make the most sense for you in your personal or institutional context.
