On 7 Feb 2008, Wayne Mackintosh, Teemu Leinonen, David Wiley, Seth Gurell, and Leigh Blackall met to discuss the initial efforts for the OER Handbook. Seth and David outlined why they started the project. Ideas included the creation of mini books to be brought into one; the creation of a generic text book; creation of lesson plans and learning activities to compliment that text book; the need to find and agree of a structure; to start with identifying and responding to a range of questions; to write micro with a view to forming macro views...

What's in it?
