Educational technology, sometimes referred to as EdTech, is the study and ethical practice of facilitating learning and improving performance by creating, using, and managing appropriate technological processes and resources.
The field of Open Educational Resources is burgeoning. There are new sites, collections, projects, and programs added all the time. OER may include course materials, texbooks, tools, databases, open source software, entire courses, and other openly available resources.
A tremendous opportunity at this time is OER Discovery--creating search engines or other means to find suitable content when you need it. Just because it's freely available doesn't mean it's good quality.
This page is an ever-changing list of OER sites and resources that would be appropriate for use at OWU, or would be good for OWU instructors and administrators to be aware of. If you find one or know of one that's not here, please tell us about it in the Your Ideas box below.
