OERB eResources

OERB eResources

Here is a resource for teacher who are managing multiple subjects. It is made available through the elearning consortium and boosts a generous  spectrum of course material for immediate use. Teachers and student do need to sign into the OERB portal to access the content, and requires the same login and password that was introduced in earlier OERB demonstrations. All students use the same login is (gecdsbstudent), and password (oerbs). See me for teacher login and password. Click the image below, or click here to access the resource.

Note: There are almost 100 coursed set up for teacher and student use. Some of these are affected by broken links, and discontinued access, but for the most part there is still a lot of value in the content.
