Stalking The Mythical OER Reuse

an invited online presentation for the Ontario Universities’ Council on e-Learning (OUCEL) August 8, 2014 (possibly live audio streamed to ds106 radio)

Open Educational Resources (OERs)… “are freely accessible, openly licensed documents and media that are useful for teaching, learning, and assessing as well as for research purposes.”

There are gobs of them online in various collections, as subjects of conferences and journal papers. One of their primary virtues is that they are built and shared for others to reuse.

But OER Reuse… does that really exist beyond blurry photos in the forest? I am looking for stories of OER reuse, tell me that they truly exist. Make me a True Believer. Tell me a True Story of OER Reuse, ok? I have a few ones here, but seek many more.
