This starter kit has been created to provide instructors with an introduction to the use and creation of open educational resources (OER). The text is broken into five sections: Getting Started, Copyright, Finding OER, Teaching with OER, and Creating OER. Although some chapters contain more advanced content, the starter kit is primarily intended for users who are entirely new to Open Education.
The Rebus Guide to Publishing Open Textbooks (So Far) is a living repository of collective knowledge, written to equip all those who want to publish open textbooks with the resources they need. Representing two years of collaboration, innumerable conversations and exchanges, and a wide range of collective knowledge and experience, the Guide is a book-in-progress and will evolve and grow over time.
This application is designed to help you easily cite open material you find; as you fill out the form the application will automatically generate the attribution for you, to cite only openly distributed work, such as work licensed by Creative Commons or released in the public domain, and to provide a default attribution statement. You’re welcome to modify the citation to make it more suitable to your needs.
