Open Educational Resources (OER)

Description

If based in NUI Galway, there is a a suite of OER publishing tools and platforms to create and promote your own open, free, and reusable OER learning materials. The aim is to provide access to OER creation and publishing for NUI Galway students and staff. 

Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

This is aimed at people interested in making a difference in open education and creating or modifying OERs. Importantly, the promotion of the use and production of OER is a flagship goal in the Open Value of the NUI Galway Strategy 2020-2025. OERs can be produced and published using several evolving tools and platforms. As an output of the Student Project Funded OER project, the Library provides NUI Galway Open Press. NUI Galway Open Press is currently powered by Pressbooks. Pressbooks enables the production and editing of web books and similar content, which can be published under an open licence. This provides an excellent opportunity to produce, or customise, Open Texts and similar materials (e.g. lecture notes, handbooks, manuals, annotated books/memoirs, essay collections, etc).
