Favorite Open Educational Resources

November 6, 2009 Leave a comment

I’ve been using free educational resources in my presentations for a few years.  Several professors have asked me for a list of Open Educational Resources (OER) that I have shared in various workshops. Here is a list of ten of my current favorites:

  1. – Search engine that can be used to find free images on the web.
  2. Incompetech is a collection of Creative Commons licensed music.
  3. iTunes U is a collection of audio and video content from higher education faculty around the world that can be freely used for educational purposes. Many SPU professors are freely sharing their work in iTunes U. You can find it at:
  4. Khan Academy provides 800+ YouTube tutorials covering math, science, and finance problems.
  5. MERLOT is a peer-reviewed searchable collection of online learning materials.
  6. Search by Creative Commons provides a convenient way to access search engines that include CC licensed materials.
  7. Webcast.Berkeley is a collection of podcasts and webcasts from the University of California Berkeley.
  8. Wikimedia Commons is a media repository for public domain and freely-licensed educational media content (images, sound and video clips).
  9. YouTube EDU is a collection of videos and channels from higher education institutions
  10. MIT OpenCourseware is a website that contains almost all content from MIT courses.

How was digital video used in Higher Education during 2008?

This article highlights some of the ways web video was used by higher education during 2008. The Texas A & M grass roots video project is interesting. I like how they are letting students be creative with a simple rule that video must be in good taste.
