Knowledge, Learning, Community

A core element of community-based OER initiatives is the idea of students creating their own learning resources. Unsurprisingly, there isn't a lot of attention devoted to helping students do this, because most discussion of OER focuses on instructors as producers and users. This guide, while flawed in many ways, is a step in the right direction. For one thing, it offers links to a variety of resources. It also provides context and even some direction for teachers. I'm less enthused about the BEST self-directed learning rubric, which describes "the ability to plan, direct, and control one's emotions, thoughts, and behaviors during a learning task." That may be useful for some people, but is orthogonal to the purpose of creating learning resources.
