Reuse/Remix

Why Remix?

Update content, Change order, Add new content

  • Keep the OER up to date by adding the latest discoveries or theories
  • Adapt it for different teaching situations
  • Make something richer
  • Adapt the material to make it more accessible for people with different disabilities
  • Insert some cultural specific references to make a concept easier to understand
