A Web-Based Expert System for Designing Instructional Scenarios from Université de Montréal, Québec
In response to the demand for more pedagogical and learning design support for instructors and faculty, Bruno Poellhuber, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Education at the Université de Montréal, and his colleagues developed an open source, web-based tool OAS (Outil d’Aide à la Scénarisation), to help construct teaching scenarios.

The OAS tool guides users in the design and preparation of teaching-learning contexts or scenarios, focusing on active pedagogical approaches and the selective use of information and communications technologies. The tool can be used for the design of a short teaching module, a workshop, a course or any other learning context.

OER_ENG01232018.JPG This Contact North I Contact Nord series, Open Education Resources (OER) Applications from Around the World, explores thirteen examples of how OER are developed, integrated and used for teaching, learning and organizational change.

Universities in the eastern United States offer two examples.

The process of creating a Z-Degree, a program with no textbook costs for students, is outlined at Tidewater Community College, Virginia.

Two flexible OER modules on critical reading and math competencies at Mercy College in New York resulted in significant improvements in student retention and achievement.
