This workshop will examine the possibilities that OER materials have to offer in terms of finding suitable material, creating video, electronic flashcards, and other interactive student activities that will allow students to truly take charge of their own education. Participants will have hands-on opportunities to create for themselves beautiful and professionally-rendered products that they can be proud of and materials that students will actually use and come back to over and over again throughout the course of the semester and beyond. The workshop will also examine third-party software that does not require a license to use and is completely free to both the instructor and student alike. Moreover, it will also discuss dormant and abandoned copyright materials that have been entrusted to colleges, universities, and nonprofits and how to make good use of them in your courses.
