Reviewer Comments:

This six unit course for teachers covers the fundamentals of the OER movement and gives a plethora of information relevant to this topic. The modules are presented in sequential order and should be used as designed for content clarity. Each unit begins with an introductory video by a qualified professor outlining the content within each module. The course materials, links and additional resources provide a rich assortment of background information, related websites, and activities so depth of knowledge can be accrued.
