In our discussions in the course this week on accessibility and UDL, OER is also an increasingly necessary topic to consider in synchronous and asynchronous learning. I'd like to share this BC Campus video from last week. https://video.bccampus.ca/media/Kaltura+Capture+recording+-+May+13th+2020%2C+10A27A40+am/0_7q1mpje2
Part of the OER Summit at the U of Alberta. https://www.ualberta.ca/centre-for-teaching-and-learning/grants/oer/oer-summit.html
Thank you for sharing this Doug in the context of accessibility - OER is accessible by nature and has many affordances - being able to view in many formats, having a file that is friendly with text to speech tools etc. OER also reduces many barriers to access as well. I just shared this one pager today: https://bccampus.ca/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Using-OER-to-reopen.pdf
This is a great resource! Thank you. I've printed the page and have it posted on my note board. I'll definitely think and share this as well.
