Database of Open Source Educational Content

The Open Educational Resources (OER) Commons
database provides instructional materials that have
been shared by teachers of all educational levels.
Materials include full courses, course materials,
webcasts, audio files, discussion forums, games,
assignments, lesson plans and more. Although
many of the resources here are most appropriate for
high school or undergraduate classes, there are items
of potential interest to law teachers. For example, UC
Berkeley's forum on "National Security, the War on
Terror, and the Constitution" is available here as a web cast.

You can browse the database by tag, subject matter, or
grade level or use the advanced search function to
select resources by multiple factors.

You can also contribute your own materials to share
through the web site.
