Welcome to the OER Handbook blog!

The purpose of this OER Handbook is to provide a beginner's guide to creating OER material. Once the handbook is complete, it will be made available online for free. Offline users will be able to purchase it from Amazon's Print-on-Demand service. If you have additional ideas for distribution, please let me know.

The base for this handbook is a collection of notes from the OERInterop2007 meeting (sponsored by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation). But in order for this handbook to be successful it needs help from the community.

That's where you come in.

Take a look at the wiki and the proposed outline here. Please add to the knowledge base to make this a truly useful handbook. This blog will be for announcements and meta-discussion.

I look forward to hearing from you and I'll see you on the wiki.

Hey Seth, coming to you via Wiley's blog. Maybe want to check out the work in progress on Wikiversity: Composing OER. Maybe you can give us a hand as part of your project here?
