Making OER Easy and Preventing Lock-in With Tech Standards

Let's spend some time considering the full learning environments of faculty and learners when adopting OER and open pedagogy. A teacher doesn't have time to manage content, assessments, and homework across 3 systems. Forcing a learner to handle different systems for each class causes unnecessary stress and overhead to their semester. We can make this easier with open integration standards.

Sometimes you need to move between platforms and you don't want to have to redo all the work you put into customization. Or possibly even lose all the content! Your course should be portable regardless of whether you're using a custom local system, a common open source project, or an EdTech vendor's platform. We'll cover common portability standards and how you can understand the impact any given platform will have on your ability to migrate.
