How do I know the OER I am looking at are any good?
As with anything on the web, there is no definitive way to determine whether an OER is “good”. One of the key skills that people should be developing in our information-rich world is the ability to perform online research to help evaluate the relative merit and trustworthiness of different information sources. There are several ways to make quick determinations of quality, such as the identity and credentials of the author, the prestige of the hosting institution, user feedback and ratings, and so on. Ultimately, the only way to obtain good information about the relative qualities of different OER is for the user community to provide that feedback for others to benefit from. Our search project is being designed to enable such feedback and to capitalize on any such information that already exists.
