Sometimes you will find OER that might need to be adapted to fit specific needs and requirements for your classroom. Adapting OER means making changes to already existing open content (Revise and Remix). It can be as basic as editing the content so as to customize it to your needs (Revise) or finding other OER content that you can combine and integrate with the original OER content (Remix).

Step 2

Determine adaptation needs

Before adapting an OER, it helps to consider how you would need to modify it. Do you need to change illustrations, graphs or charts? How much content needs to be changed? Do you have access to the technology required to edit the OER? Learn more about basic considerations.
