The present paper describes how Open Educational Resources (OERs) are used and conceptualized in the frame of the DigiCulture Project. OERs are “digital learning resources offered online freely (without cost) and openly (without licensing barriers) to teachers, educators, students, and independent learners in order to be used, shared, combined, adapted, and expanded in teaching, learning and research”. OERs are interconnected with other concepts such as Open Source, Open Practices and Open Source. The OERs used or created in the project DSC are presented also by type, links and screen captures. A total of 278 OERs were introduced in the courses, 153 newly created for the DigiCulture project and 125 reused existing OERs. The types of the newly created OERs are as follows: 20 new videos, 32 new articles or HTML pages, 94 new books (collection of articles), 4 new images or infographics and 3 new case studies. The types of the reused OERs are: 75 reused videos, 15 reused article or HTML pages, 2 reused books, 2 reused images, 13 reused tools, templates or games, 6 reused guides, 10 reused virtual tours or galleries and 2 reused glossaries.Download the full document O3.4 DigiCulture_O3_4_DSC_OERs_Report
