For this activity, experiment by building or customizing an openly licensed graphic or other resource for a concept related to your discipline, and share it via OER Commons,  the “public digital library of open educational resources.”

To Do:

  1. Use the OER Commons Open Resource Builder to assemble  and publish your OER. Why share here? It can be part of a global commons of Open Education Resources (worth exploring too).
  2. Build or customize an openly licensed graphic or other resource for your discipline area, and share it via OER Commons.
  3. For your response to this activity, enter the URL from OER Commons or upload a PDF generated from your shared item.
  4. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form.

This activity is part of the Let’s Experiment section of the Experimenter Module.
