Learning resources, or learning Materials
- Rice Connexions : small modules, with clear indexation, CC license, modification/customisation uneasy. Large choice including my interests (science, computer science, education). Small bricks linkable in a course.
- MIT OpenCourseware : full courses (classical US size), high quality, licence CC, but big size and modification uneasy.
- LeMill. Fully multilanguage, good ! Editable, nice ! License : CC, OK ! Slow access ... Interesting subjects around open resources, support for learning. Some well documented, some to be extended : welcome in a real open collaborative world !
Some other resource repositories of interest :
- Invocom : past european project for materials in telecommunications. Bricks, some in CC, modification uneasy (ask for french, we can propose the sourcesfrom examples hosted here).
- Savoirs partagés. An initiative of my institute.
Resources to support teachers
- OpenLearn, looks appealing. I'll have a closer look later. Includes materials and help for "educators". CC license, cool.
- Wikiversity. Learning materials can be found in wikibooks and wikipedia (never forget that). May host materials (hte bricks) and project or course : (the glue). Activities may be hosted in wikiversity (If you have any doubt, have a look at Erkan's blog). Easy to modify/adapt/enhance ... License GFDL. Maybe not so user friendly than others. May be enhanced with third party tools, like in OER course.
- subject of our course ! (not assure but help in fact)
ToDo : some other projects to list.
...So many different projects exist. Not sure all will survive, should them be supported by institutions (MIT OCW, savoirs partagés) or by a community (LeMill, Wikiversity). Giving credits (OpenLearning,) or not.
