Expanding the World’s Collection of Open Assets for Open Education Week

A new approach to sharing open assets.

Traditionally for Open Education Week we have called for the sharing of open “assets” published to our own collection (see the archive of 716 resources added through 2023). But since the concept of this week in March includes a distributed schedule of events hosted around the world, this year we are turning the resource sharing as well to be globally distributed.

We ask the open education community between now and the end of March to share as many existing or new OERs to any repository that they choose — well known large ones, regional collections, or institutional ones. The repositories listed below are options on the form but you can designate any repository. The only requirement is that what you share is openly available and clearly licensed for reuse.

What you share can be any open educational resource- a media item, an activity worksheet, and interactive learning activity, an online lesson, an open course, an open textbook, an open published paper. You choose where to share it.

In this way, we are aiming to increase across the world over the next few months, a massive influx of open resources made available worldwide.

We ask you to simply share the title, a link, the OER repository you have made it available, and how to credit the sharing so we can benchmark these contributions for the time between now and Open Education Week.
