Open Educational Resources:
Open Educational Resources (OERs) are learning resources created by other instructors or publisher who allow other instructors to use their content. You may find useful supplemental materials for your courses using the OER directory listing.
Panopto allows you to record audio, video and your computer screen (Powerpoint, or any software application) directly from your desktop and provides full capability for integrated playback later. Recordings of lectures can also be done from your laptop or a classroom computer. Videos created with external software can be uploaded into Panopto.
