As a series of actions to bridge the recent 2021 OEGlobal Online conference with the upcoming May 2022 in-person Congress in Nantes, we invite open educators to enrich the UNESCO Recommendation on OER by using Hypothes.is web annotation to add information, examples, commentary to specific portions of the five action areas.
As described in our announcement during the conference, annotation
Everything you need is provided in the OER Recommendation Pressbook but we also created a screencast guide showing multiple approaches to the process.
- If you are familiar Hypothesis and web annotation, select a language version of the Recommendation and annotate with notes attached to specific phrases. Hypothesis is already enabled on these pages.
- For insight on web annotation and a safe place to practice Hypothesis, start with the chapter on Annotation Basics.
- As context, read about the OEGlobal conferences and the plans to bridge them over the next few months.
- You can add annotations using any information you have direct knowledge of. But as a good starting point, we are inviting anyone to connect presentations, resources, discussions from the OEGlobal Conference directly to the Recommendation. You can find in the Pressbook several ways to locate conference details.
Look soon for more announcements as we roll out activities over the next few months, focusing on one action area at a time. But you can be like Rosa the Annotator who adds something every time she comes across a relevant detail in her research, her readings, and her social media browsing.
Join us anytime in annotating the OER Recommendation.
