List of Open Educational Resources

Over the past few years, the SSMU has worked with instructors and student assistants to compile Open Educational Resources tailored specifically to a number of classes at McGill. 


Tools for open pedagogy

  • available within Canvas, this tool allows for collaborative annotation among students. 
  • Wikibooks and WikiEdu: collaborate with students on a text or Wikipedia article that will be shared with the public.
  • Google Drive: have students collaborate on texts, presentations, slides, and spreadsheets. Content can be published and shared with future classes.
  • Perusall: upload an OER text for students to annotate and collaborate on.
  • YouTube: have students create and upload instructional YouTube videos; give the videos an open license so others can share and adapt as needed. YouTube videos can be embedded into your Canvas course by adding external media.
