Terms to understand:
If you change the material significantly, then you should add your attribution information and submit the new version to OER Commons.

Consider alternative methods of assessing students. Some people can demonstrate their understanding or skills better when they can choose among essay, power-point, video, or other project presentation.
Consider having students create OER/open-licensed templates or exercises that can be used and modified by other teachers and students. Add these to OER Commons.
Get rid of throw-away assignments and have students do something they, or others, can use again in the future.
