Earlier today, we sent a broadcast message about the OER course at SUNY. However, people have to be logged into this Community to see the details and the registration link. So I am now sending the content of the event including the registration link. If you register for the course and would like a mentor, write to firstname.lastname@example.org --- Regards, Jacky

OER-101: Locating, Creating, Licensing and Utilizing OERs is a self-paced online community course that has been built to demonstrate how to find, adapt, and develop OERs step-by-step. These OERs may then be licensed via Creative Commons, printed and bound, and integrated into any type of learning environment.
The course is organized into five “pursuits,” each of which represents one facet of the world of OERs. Participants are encouraged to complete all of the pursuits by following the suggested course progression, but each pursuit can also be completed individually.
For evaluation and feedback, OER-101 will employ a badging system powered by Mozilla Open Badges. The exploration of badging within the course is funded by a SUNY Innovative Instruction Technology Grant. Participants will earn badges by completing the course pursuits and will receive a ‘master badge’ for course completion. Additionally, OER-101 will utilize a community learning model informed by a facilitation method established by Philyse Banner at the American Public University System.
The results from this course will be documented within the SUNY Learning Commons.
