Open Educational Resources (OER) are teaching and learning materials, such as instructional videos, images and even simulations, that you may freely use and reuse at no cost. Unlike heavily restricted copyright protected work ("all rights reserved"), OERs have been created by an individual or organization who choose to retain few, if any, rights. This done in the spirit of open, accessible education to create a better shared humanity.horizontal ruleBlended Flow Toolkit Logo

CDLI has designed the Blended Flow Toolkit, which helps you achieve the right "flow" between online and classroom sessions in blended/hybrid courses. The toolkit presents an inquiry-based progression that's flexible enough to help you design entire modules, or just one transition between online and classroom learning. Ideas for activities and assessments are provided at each stage of student inquiry. In addition, there are tool ideas to help you think about how to accomplish each activity online and in the classroom.horizontal rule
