OER Commons

Open Education Resource Commons is a free site that offers links to many, many K-12 and post-secondary resources, as well as articles and reports, surveys, conferences and workshops, discussion forums, blogs, and wikis. A sampling of resources can be found on the front page in the form of the OER Top 10, as well as 30 tags, and the option to view topics, and browse by categories and collections.

"My eCoach has been the best tool I have used. eCoach is a user-friendly, time saving, and a universal website. The best part of using eCoach is being able to design a website that enhances learning for students. In such a technology age, 8 and 9 year old students need an outlet for keeping them engaged. My eCoach provides that opportunity for my students, they are able to make the connections with real world applications, use them at school and extend their learning at home. They can talk to each other, share their experiences and what they have learned. What more can we ask for? My-eCoach does it all! "
