Why share my resources?

Sharing your learning and teaching resources can bring many advantages. Your resources can benefit others who teach and learn, and allow them to learn from your expertise and enhance their curriculum. Opening your learning and teaching materials to a wider public means that people throughout the world can benefit from your knowledge. Participation in Open Educational Resources (OERs) helps build collaborative academic networks. As educational resources are used, reused and repurposed, potentially throughout the world, new opportunities arise to apply your work to a wider context.

You can track the impact of sharing your scholarly work on your user profile page. For each assignment you submit, you will see statistics including pageviews, # of people who adapted the assignment, # of comments, and # of times your supplemental documents were downloaded. All assignments contributed to this site are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 United States License, but a Suggested Citation is generated for each assignment you contribute to encourage receiving the proper credit.
