There are three stages to creating Open Educational Resources using Open Author.
Write Mode - Add headings, text and media to build the content of your resource
Describe Mode - Enter important information that makes searching for resources easier. You can also align your resource to Common Core State Standards.
Publish Mode - Select a license for your resource that says how people will be allowed to use your work, then publish!
As soon as you start creating a resource, it is automatically saved in the Drafts folder of ‘My Items’. You can open ‘My Items’ using the dropdown menu below your username.
Once you publish your resource, it will be available on OER Commons.
