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.

"I love to use My eCoach because it allows me to produce a very professional lesson plan. I share my work with other teachers at conferences and in my district. I work hard to develop strong lesson plans tied to Michigan content standards and it is important to me that my finished work looks good and reflects the amount of time and energy I have invested it. My eCoach tools are easy to use and I am proud of the results they produce.

In addition, My eCoach makes it easy to encourage other teachers trying to create lesson plans tied to their content standards. I am able to give them feedback through each step of the process. Even though they may be creating their first lesson plan, they are delighted with the resulting product. It empowers them to try other technology tools that are new to them.

I have used My eCoach for the past ten years. I have created lesson plans for a state level organization, as well as for the State Department of Education. In all that time, I have never seen another tool that can compare to the tools on My eCoach. In ease of use and in the product it produces, My eCoach provides the best tools available."
