How to Evaluate OER

There are various checklists available for evaluating OER. Five common elements of these checklists include:

  1. That the content covers the subject area appropriately
  2. That the content of the OER is accurate and free of major errors
  3. That the license of the content can be used or altered for the course's needs
  4. That the OER is clearly written and appropriate for the students' level of understanding
  5. That the accessibility of the content is appropriate for all students
