Session Title

Opendora: Minnesota State’s One-stop Shop for Open Educational Resources (Lightning Round)

Description

Opendora, developed by PALS, is a digital archive for open educational resources. Minnesota State’s goal in developing Opendora was to create a central digital archive for faculty and librarians to leverage licensed open educational resources (OER) with the ability to easily access, load, and share material. This ultimately results in customized resources that best meet the needs of students and reduces the cost of textbooks. Opendora allows the storage of, or linking to, course content including textbooks, lecture notes, syllabi, reading lists, videos, and more. Opendora uses an open source platform that provides simple, customized forms to load OER material. This talk will provide a brief overview of Opendora and future plans.
