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 founded SAV school to educate poor family children of the rural area of Nepal seeing some parents unwilling to educate their children and some parents willing to send their children to teach them english. I've been focusing my strategy to bring the poor children to school and educate them in English medium. Parents love to hear their children speaking English. English is our second language. I look forward to sharing and connecting in My eCoach
