In April 2020, my colleagues and I organized a workshop on open educational resources (OER) and metadata. The focus was on OER infrastructes and their features in Germany, the importance of metadata and its relevance of effectively searching and finding OER, as well as supportive tools and services to add metadata and apply strcututred vocabularly.
We created a Wikiversity site with workshop information and material presented.
OERInfo created two blog entries that summarize relevant facts discussed at the workshop and that give an introduction into OER and metadata for researchers and practitioners.
On OERInfo, you will find the first blog entry with a summary of the most relevant workshop topics discussed, and another one that explains the most relevant aspects of metadata more generally.
