This framework is a practical starting point for creating new open educational resources (OER) and assessing and editing OER for inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA). Each section below notes a broad category to assess. The “Aims” list requirements to fulfil the needs of the category. The “Actions and Considerations” offer areas to assess, tips, and examples that will help achieve the aims.
Although this framework and guide are targeted at OER creation, they can be used for all types of content creation.
