    In the summer of 2023, eCampusOntario’s Open Library team joined forces with subject matter experts from Ontario’s colleges and universities, including both English and French speakers. Together, they developed comprehensive, bilingual-by-design training materials on open educational resources (OER). This project was possible due to funding by the Government of Ontario.

    The dedicated team, listed in the table below, aimed to provide educators with materials that would not only enhance their understanding and use of OER, but also empower them to contribute actively by creating and adapting these resources. To enrich the educational experience, interactive activities utilizing H5P and Padlet were incorporated.

    We would like to extend our gratitude to Artha Learning for their exceptional contribution as instructional and graphic designers, and to Jolene Hurtubise, for her contribution on accessibility. Additionally, a heartfelt thanks to the Open Library and the eCampusOntario teams for their unwavering support.
