Similar to a lot of my course peers, I too researched more into the OER Commons(OER means Open Educational Resources). Why did I choose this one you ask? Well, for starters Alecshowed it to us in class the other night and it was interesting to me as I have never heard of it before. Before actually researching anything, I noticed that the home page looks professional, neat, easy to navigate and the colours really hooked me. So, at first glance it looks good… hopefully, that saying does not bite me in the tuchus later on… never judge a book by its cover, but I definitely am.
Although I feel pretty comfortable with using Google Workspace for Education, I was limited to some of the things that I could do because many of my students shared one piece of technology amongst the whole family, some struggled to find internet access, and some struggled with the basics of technology, even though we had practiced it for months, even though I had prepared how-to step-by-step documents with both pictures and words.
