All of the answers are somewhere on the OER infoKit. http://bit.ly/oerinfokit


1.  What is the URL for the Accessibility Passport Generator, and why would you want to generate a passport?

A. accessibilitypassport.org

The Accessibility Passport is a way of encouraging people who commission or design learning objects or software to take accessibility into account, and to give them feedback on the effectiveness and inclusivity of their materials. It provides feedback from the user and the deliverer to the commissioners and designers to encourage productive interaction.

Search for accessibility or see all tags link in sidebar

Or use accessibility tag in tagcloud (not on front page anymore show them where it now is - click on Experienced with OER on home page)

this is a good example because it includes subject discioline stuff too.


7. Imagine you are preparing a session with your stakeholders where you anticipate some negativity toward the concept of OER and to their involvement. Find three pages in the infokit that can help you prepare. Hope they translate this to barriers and enablers in some way and find
