The ExplOERer MOOC is a four week long course facilitated by experts, experienced educators and panelists. Participants are guided through the discovery, use and reuse of open educational resources (OER) for teaching purposes in all sectors of education. It is attractive for those who want to start using OER in their teaching and those who are already users but who are looking for an opportunity to create and share their own teaching resources for teaching. The course participants explore approaches to selecting and using materials that have been created by others, unpack the process of adaptation and discuss sharing and networking. The course is available in English, Polish and Swedish. For more information please visit the ExplOER course website.
