The purpose of the CARE Framework is to articulate a set of shared values and a collective vision for the future of education and learning enabled by the widespread adoption and use of OER. It aims to address the question of how an individual, institution, or organization seeking to be a good steward can contribute to the growth and sustainability of the OER movement consistent with the community’s values.

Has an open license that allows for derivatives
Is a complete book (not individual chapters) available as a portable file (e.g. PDF, ePub)
Is currently in use at multiple higher educational institutions, or affiliated with a higher education institution, scholarly society, or professional organization
Is an original textbook (not a derivative of another textbook) or is for an entirely new audience
Great advice! Read the piece about microcredentialing - start learning online in small bites/bytes today!
Also - many of the course on the openlearning.com portal are free - open and ready for you to start!
With so many free courses available, time & money are no longer excuses. This year, it's time to join an online course!

he Higher Education Learning Framework (HELF) is an evidence-informed model for university learning.
The HELF is based on the seven main themes emerging from a rigorous study into higher education learning undertaken by researchers in the Science of Learning Research Centre.
An overview of the HELF is provided in the HELF matrix. Each of the 7 principles is further described in the HELF handbook which provides (i) an explanation (ii) implications for teachers, students and assessment and (iii) a discussion of current literature relating to the principles.
To help stem the rising cost of college textbooks, the U.S. Department of Education today announced a $4.9 million grant to the University of California, Davis (UC Davis) to lead a pilot program to develop free, open textbooks in targeted subjects.
Patter talks about conceptual and theoretical frameworks for PhDs.
A theory is just a way of explaining, of saying how things relate to each other, why they are the way that they are, and how they relate to other things.
Colour is a cue that allows your audience to see what you want them to see, feel what you want them to feel, and to do what you want them to do. How you use colour also affects the usability – whether people can read your content or not.
Colour has an impact on how we think and behave. It directs our eye where to look, what to do, and how to interpret something, placing content into context. It helps us decide what is important and what is not. That’s precisely why it is important to keep colour in mind when designing your course banner and thumbnail.
In looking at what these pedagogical changes are and their implications for students, faculty, staff, and institutions, we highlight:
Seven key developments in online learning and how they impact our understanding of pedagogy;
More than 60 examples of applications of these developments in innovations in colleges and universities in Ontario, across Canada, and internationally, selected from Contact North | Contact Nord's Pockets of Innovations Series on teachonline.ca; and
Seven questions for you to consider about the implications of changes in pedagogy and student learning.

We provide research-based tools, training, and assessments to build Cultural Intelligence (CQ)—the ability to relate and work effectively with people from different nationalities, ethnicities, age groups, and more.
National cultures can be described according to the analysis of Geert Hofstede. These ideas were first based on a large research project into national culture differences across subsidiaries of a multinational corporation (IBM) in 64 countries. Subsequent studies by others covered students in 23 countries, elites in 19 countries, commercial airline pilots in 23 countries, up-market consumers in 15 countries, and civil service managers in 14 countries. Together these studies identified and validated four independent dimensions of national culture differences, with a fifth dimension added later.
