OER 101: What are Open Educational Resources and Why Are They Important?

EdWeb.net has lots of ongoing communities and webinars on many topics.  On February 18, 2015 they sponsored a webinar on Open Educational Resources (OER) to explain the basics and provide ideas on how teachers can create and use OER in their classrooms.

In their webinar they address these topics about OER:
  • How did OER start? 
  • What was the motivation behind creating resources that are freely available for other's use? 
  • Also, how do I create my own? 
  • Have I been creating resources that could almost qualify as OER?
  • Where can I find Open Educational Resources and use them in my classroom?
