Ed Talks: Open Education Resources

James Glapa-Grossklag visited RMIT from the College of the Canyons in Southern California to talk to us about the importance of Open Educational Resources (OERs). As the Dean of Educational Technology, he says that OERs can benefit all students and all learners.

OERs are openly licensed learning materials that can be repurposed, shared, copied and edited to allow easier sharing of information and “remove barriers to student success”, such as the main barrier of cost.
