Many states and school districts are using Open Educational Resources (OER) for reasons that are as much about innovation as they are about economy. With careful consideration in the creation and curation process, OER can be accessible to all learners. In this session, we'll introduce an openly available protocol for evaluating the accessibility of created or curated OERs in a number of formats (Word and Google documents, PDFs, videos and more). You’ll also hear from education leaders in one state who will share their process and lessons learned for vetting accessible OER to support equitable learning opportunities for all students.
