Description

OERs are digital materials made available freely and/or through open licensing that allows educators to reuse, revise, remix, and redistribute the content. Switching to openly licensed educational materials can allow school districts to repurpose funding typically spent on textbooks for other pressing needs. However, openly licensed content is not without its challenges, one of them being the accessibility of the materials for students with disabilities. In this session, you will learn how OER and accessibility can go well together to support learning in inclusive settings.
