Teachers sharing resources online

Free statement of participation on completion

This free course, Teachers sharing resources online, is designed to help you learn about how learning resources can be shared using online repositories, i.e. websites that allow for the uploading of electronic materials that can then be used and adapted by others. One of the leading examples of such websites is TES Connect. While the course draws its examples and activities from this site its principles are designed so that they may be applied to others.
