OER Commons - MOBIUS Hub

OER Commons is a collaborative platform for creating, storing, browsing, and curating OER Collections for higher education faculty.

Because St. Charles Community College has access to OER Commons through our statewide academic library consortium, MOBIUS, the college has a space to author, store, and share OER material.

If you click the button to join the group you will have access to the tools it provides for authoring. If you want to have material stored there to be shared by your colleagues and/or the OER Community, please contact Theresa Flett.

"Groups provides a flexible environment to organize, create, share, and discuss resources with others in your network. Collaborate with group members, tag and add resources to shared folders, create your own collections, all within a public or private group."
