OER Commons Tools
Open Author lets you combine text, pictures, sound, files and video. Saved as openly licensed educational resources, you can share them with friends, colleagues and educators from around the world.
The Common Core Alignment and OER Evaluation Tool is found on all Resource Pages in OER Commons. You may easily use the tool to align appropriate resources to the Common Core State Standards, and to evaluate the resource against certain aspects of quality.
The Learner Options feature allows you to change display of the site to meet your unique viewing preferences. It is found in the top right-hand corner of each OER Commons webpage.
Each resource has one of four conditions of use labels. These at-a-glance labels can help you quickly distinguish whether a resource can be changed or shared without further permission required. In addition, you can find the specific license or terms of permitted use for each resource.
