Rubrics to evaluate OER

An Open Educational Resource (OER) is ideally developed and shared freely in the modality of open access in order to foster the generation of new knowledge, skills and attitudes, which makes sense based on the needs of the person that requires the OER. The open educational resources can be identified as full courses, course materials, modules, books, articles, video, tests, software and any other tool, material or technique used to support access to knowledge. The assessment enables that educational resources can be identified, selected and evaluated in terms of quality, relevance and pertinence.

Each evaluation that is performed on an OER enhances its value by considering that new knowledge is added to prior knowledge, just like the experience and personal judgment of the evaluator that reviews the educational resource in question, having in reference each one of the evaluation criteria and by giving feedback through a clearly redaction, simple and informative.
