I realized that I did not know much about OER even though I thought I knew some.

I now understand how OER licenses work.

An OER doesn’t have to be a perfect work. It can be a handout or a lesson we have already prepared.

I now have more concrete and practical knowledge about copyright policies.

I am more familiar with the kinds of OER resources that are out there.

I have ideas for the development and contribution of my own projects to these databases.
