We demonstrated the process of reusing, revising and remixing Open Educational Resources (OER) for an online course found in SkillsCommons using SoftChalk’s tools to transform them into interactive, accessible materials. Materials in this makeover included readable pdfs, images, embedded videos/presentations, quizzes, an OER textbook, activities, and more.
