OER Handbook Zotero Collection

For those who are unfamiliar with Zotero, it is a Firefox extension for organizing sources and citations. One of the benefits of Zotero is the ability to export collections of sources for others to import into their copy of Zotero.

The OER Handbook project is now making a collection of the sources used within the handbook available as a Zotero collection. The hope is that making these sources available will assist OER researchers and practitioners in future endeavors.

Version 1.0 Available

Version 1.0 of the OER Handbook is now available. A print version will be available for purchase in the next few weeks.

During the development of this handbook valuable discussions have taken place regarding what it means to develop OER. Hopefully these conversations will inform future handbooks, tutorials and other introductory material. The contributors to the handbook have created a "Lessons Learned" page.

Special thanks to the following:
A very special thanks to the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation for their financial support.
