Module 11. Share a Remixed Creation

In this assignment, you will create a remix of an open educational resource (or your own resource that includes open content). You will create the resource, cite other resources use, label the resource for reuse, upload the resource (if necessary), and share it with others.

Create Remix

Do one of the following:

  1. Find an existing open educational resource (e.g., lesson plan, textbook chapter), and remix it (e.g., add content) to suit your specific classroom or school needs;
  2. Take an existing resource you have created (e.g., lesson plan), and add an open educational resource to it (e.g., images, text, rubrics).

Examples of acceptable remixes include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Textbook
  • Textbook chapter
  • Unit plan
  • Lesson plan
  • Video
  • Presentation (e.g., PowerPoint for a lecture)
  • Image (e.g., map with labels)
  • Book (e.g., poetry anthology)

As you do this, think about what would be useful for you in your classroom, and create something that others will find useful as well.

Cite

Be sure to properly cite your resource, utilizing the attribution guide as needed.

Label for Reuse

As you have searched for open educational resources, you may have struggled with determining exactly how you can reuse others' work. Do not leave others wondering how they can use your work. By properly labeling your work under a copyleft license, others who would like to use your work can know exactly how to use it. To make this clear, include a statement somewhere prominent on your creation that it is released under one of the Creative Commons licenses (choose one).

For example, you might include the following:

 This resource is released under a CC BY 3.0 license

The license you choose is up to you, and a brief explanation of each follows.

Upload

If your resource is a document on your local computer, you will need to upload it to an online service. In most cases, you can do this through Google Drive by uploading the file and making it public.
