The links on this page will help you find Open content produced elsewhere, and useable by people at UofT in the creation of new content or for use as course material and digital coursepacks.

Learning Objects Guide
Are you looking for Open resources you can use for teaching, learning and research? This guide from the University of Toronto Libraries features a selective list of major repositories for learning objects and open courseware that can be used in teaching, learning and research, often in the form of a searchable ‘catalogue.’ These resources can take many forms, including animations, tutorials, videos, journal articles, and quizzes. Educators may include learning objects and open courseware in their lessons and students may use them to complement and enhance classroom learning.

Inverted Classrooms
An increasing number of instructors are interested in using Open courses and Open resources as the basis for inverting their teaching. In an inverted classroom, students are expected to review materials that would normally be presented in class, including the lecture, outside of class time.  This frees up class time to focus on discussion, collaborative work, and engagement with the other activities that are traditionally done outside of class. UofT’s Online Learning Strategies group and the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation are currently developing an Inverted Classroom Guide, so please check back soon for the active link. Thanks.
