2.5 Exploring OER

OER are commonly gathered together in repositories. These can be the output of one project or several projects gathered together. For example, the OU’s OpenLearn project gathers all of the OU’s open education material. The Ariadne Harvester project acts as a search engine across many repositories.

In the next activity you will explore the type of content found in OER repositories.
