Attendees are encouraged to submit a short survey to help the facilitators understand your experience level with WordPress, your familiarity with open educational resources, and the specific challenges you face when creating OERs.
p>Requirement: Computers with LocalWP pre-installed (a simple and fast way to use Wordpress locally) will be available for this session. If you wish to use your own laptop, before the session install LocalWP. To do so, follow the steps in this video (from minute 0:45 to 3:45).
This workshop will focus on how to establish an educational resource using open tools such as WordPress. This will be shown by demonstrating the process of developing two OERs at the Center for Learning and Teaching at AUC: The CLT New Chalk Talk and the Digital Literacies Toolkit. Participants will go through the journey of transforming online pdf educational articles to a full digital OER that is searchable, interactive, and categorized. Furthermore, the workshop will highlight how designing an OER using WordPress extended the communication and collaboration between readers. Also, participants will see how to replicate and customize an existing OER to fit another context to save time and effort.
This workshop will include hands-on activities related to designing online OERs.
