Before adopting an Open Educational Resource, you can decide if it meets your quality standards and the needs of you and your students. If you already have an evaluation method for potential course materials, it should work for OER, too. This page offers some more suggestions to help with the evaluation process.
When an evaluated resource meets your licensing and relevance standards but lacks aspects of production quality, accessibility, or interactivity, you can change the OER to meet your standards. OER are licensed to be remixed so content can be edited, reordered, combined, or added to. See the BC Campus OpenEd Adaptation Guide to learn more about remixing, adapting, or localizing adopted OER.
