We believe the most powerful tool in OER creation is an active community, and we’ve seen the power of bringing creators together in a shared support framework. We offer several free and open resources, including

OER Office Hours

OER Office Hours are free webinars, offered monthly, to discuss varied approaches to OER training, initiatives, and open publishing in various discipline areas. Organized in collaboration with the Open Education Network since 2017, these webinars tackle complex questions in open textbook publishing and community engagement. Each month, guest speakers share a range of experiences and insights, followed by a Q&A session in which participants can pose specific queries on the themes at hand. Be sure to tune in every month for our live sessions to join in the conversation!

The Rebus Community forum is a great space for discussion and networking for anyone working in open education. Whether you’re looking to offer your writing, editing, or reviewing skills, share OER releases, or brainstorm a new project with prospective team members, the Community forum is here for you. This free space allows you to explore OER projects, post Calls for Participation (CFPs), and share news with the wider Open community!
