This module covers how OER Common's portfolio can assist you in getting quick access to your most important OER materials. Maximize the power of OER Commons by using the portfolio to personalize your experience.

The module“ Tagging, Rating, and Reviewing OER Materials ”showed how you can begin contributing to OER Commons by using tags as well as rating and reviewing materials. This module,“My OER Portfolio,”explains how the OER Portfolio can maximize your experience in using OER Commons.

What is my oer portfolio?

When you register for a free account at OER Commons, a portfolio and profile is automatically created. Every time you save a search, add tags, ratings, reviews, comments, or submit your own instructional materials to OER Commons, these items are stored in your portfolio. You can quickly access all these items by clicking on the My OER Portfolio link located on the top of any OER Commons page.

Having a portfolio and profile in OER Commons can stimulate collaboration among educators and learners within and across disciplines.

The advantages to using your portfolio is that it:

  • personalizes your OER Commons experience
  • provides quick access to your most important OER materials
  • manages all your OER Commons items in one place
  • provides a history of your OER Commons activity
  • makes it possible to share your OER items with others
