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.

"Dear Gay, Gayle and Janet (EWYL),
Thank you very much for the fun day today. It was a challenge making our little presentation but it was fun doing it. By doing this it taught us what to watch out for in the actual planning of our project. So once again, Thank you all so much, Pam"
