Welcome to the Remixathon!

About this seminar

This event extends the reach of the Open Education Conference -- Beyond Content -- taking place in Vancouver 16-18 October, 2012. 

We have gathered 10 submissions from individuals who are seeking collaborators to create derivative works. So YOU are invited to do the remixing. This is an opportunity to give proof to the promise that Open Educational Resources have always held, that they enable remixed derivative works.

Schedule

12 October 11:00 PDT That's TODAY! 
Virtual kick-off in Blackboard Collaborate: http://urls.bccampus.ca/scopeevents
During this session the submitters will describe their OERs and envisioned enhancements.

12 - 17 October
Discussions among those who submitted projects for remixing, those who are involved in the remixing, and those who are just plain curious about the whole process. 

18 October, 12:00 PDT
Submissions are due! The results will be announced at the closing session of the Open Education conference, available via videocast.

Don't know if this item is helpful (and I may even have received from a previous SCoPE discussion). Chris

OER ESL resources and other resources

by Sylvia Currie -

Don, a quick search on the Freelearning.ca site pulls up some resources that might be of interest:

http://freelearning.ca/search-oer-sites/

There's no doubt more if you search on different key terms. The nice part about Freelearning is that it narrows down the search to items that have been flagged as high quality OER.

And Christine, thanks for dropping that OERu resource in here. I think you're right - it was probably from the Designing OERu Credentials seminar September 2011. Neat when those connections are made!
