OER for Open Schooling Teachers Guide
Welcome to the JSC OER Teachers’ Guide. The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) Open Schools Initiative launched an Open Educational Resources (OER) Project to provide materials under the Creative Commons license agreement to support independent study in 20 specially selected secondary school subjects. This JSC OER Teachers’ Guide has been developed to guide teachers/instructors on how to use the Open Educational Resources (OER) in five of these courses. Open Educational Resources are free to use and increase accessibility to education. The materials discussed in this guide are accessible for use in six countries: Namibia, Botswana, India, Lesotho, Trinidad & Tobago, and Seychelles. Other interested parties are invited to use the materials, but some contextual adaptation might be needed to maximise their benefits in different countries.
