Open Unwrapped – An Advent of Open

Ever wished you had more gifts to unwrap? Our teams have created a curated advent calendar of open educational resources for all to share.

Over the 24 days leading up to Christmas we will be posting a new #OpenUnwrapped advent item on our Open.Ed blog. Items will range from images, videos, sounds, artworks, tools, games, papers, and more.

Open Education, Open Practice, Open Access, and Open Educational Resources align with the University's values and mission to “make a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to Scotland, the UK and the world, promoting health and economic and cultural wellbeing”.

OER is not just for Christmas, it can be used, shared and re-used all year round. The joy is in the giving.

Please feel free to advertise the advent links and follow the tweets from @OpenEdEdinburgh throughout December. If you have suggestions for Edinburgh Open content which has a festive theme and you think should be included, please contact Charlie Farley -
